Everything You Want to Know About Child Abuse Reporting
Tuesday, Nov. 8, 11 a.m.-noon
1 child abuse reporting credit
Oregon State Bar Center, Tigard

ORS 9.114 requires attorneys to complete one hour of training every three years on their duties as mandatory child abuse reporters. All lawyers have a duty to report child abuse when they have reasonable cause to believe that a child with whom they have come into contact has suffered abuse or when they have reasonable cause to believe that any person with whom they have come in contact has abused a child. Attend this program and satisfy your MCLE requirement under ORS 9.114. Learn what your duty to report is, when the duty applies, what abuse is and how to report it. Other topics include the meaning of “reasonable cause” and “comes in contact,” the reporting exceptions for privileged communications and other client information, and the consequences of failing to report. No video replay.

Powerful Motion Practice
Thursday, Nov. 10, 8:45 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
5.5 general CLE or practical skills credits and 1 ethics credit
Oregon State Bar Center, Tigard

Most lawsuit outcomes are not determined at trial. The effective use of motions can make or break your case. Our seasoned litigators will share valuable insights and practice tips to strengthen your pretrial motion strategies, including avoiding inadvertent waiver of defenses, obtaining a preliminary injunction and building an adequate record during the discovery process. A discussion of summary judgment motions will offer practical tips, such as remembering to tell a great story and focusing on the other party’s words. The obvious but often forgotten adage that trial motions should be short will be reviewed, while post-trial motions will cover JNOV, dealing with findings and conclusions and preserving the record for appeal. Ethical considerations for motion practice will also be covered.
