HIPAA & HITECH: Updates, Business Associates and More
Thursday, Feb. 4, 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
3.5 general CLE credits
Oregon State Bar Center, Tigard

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also known as the stimulus bill, did more than allocate millions of dollars to shore up the weak U.S. economy. It also expanded the reach of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) by extending HIPAA privacy and security rules to business associates. Since the definition of a business associate includes someone who performs legal services to or for a covered entity, your responsibilities as a lawyer for a covered entity have now increased. This program will review HIPAA basics and examine the new requirements. Learn about coming changes and HIPAA in litigation, including discovery issues and obtaining and using medical records. You will also gain insight to compliance programs for you and your clients.

Family Law 2010
Friday, Feb. 26, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
5.5 general CLE credits and 1 ethics credit
Double Tree Hotel Lloyd Center, Portland

Having an actual conversation with someone these days can be challenging with so many forms of electronic communication available — email, text messages, blogging and social networking, just to name a few. When your clients are using all these different formats to “talk,” how can you be sure you have all the relevant data for your case? The morning session of this seminar takes an in-depth look at electronic communications with both family law cases and your role as an attorney. Learn the importance of a computer examination, the data that can be obtained, how to choose a qualified examiner, and getting electronic data admitted into evidence. Hear an ethics expert explain how a lawyer’s electronic communications — everything from websites to Facebook, blogging, and Tweeting — can violate legal ethics rules.

The afternoon sessions include a discussion on standards of review with the Hon. David Brewer, Oregon Court of Appeals; what to do when the opposing party is pro se; and a panel of circuit court judges discussing “Everything a Family Law Judge Wants You to Know.”
