The Professional Liability Fund is sponsoring “Learning the Ropes,” a practical skills CLE for new admittees to the Oregon State Bar and lawyers entering private practice in Oregon.  In 2020, this annual program will be a virtual conference taking place over four days on the Zoom platform.  The CLE will be held Tuesday through Friday, October 27-30, 2020. There is no cost to register for the conference.

The CLE includes information on developing a successful practice and avoiding legal malpractice; practical tips from lawyers and judges; advice on setting up effective office systems; ethics tips; presentations by lawyers working in various practice settings and areas of law; mental health and substance use education; and segments that fulfill your Introductory Access to Justice MCLE requirement. Attendance at the full program will satisfy MCLE requirements for new admittees’ first reporting period. The complete agenda can be found under Program Materials.

We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker will be Fay Stetz-Waters, Director of Civil Rights, Office of the Attorney General, Senior Assistant Attorney General, Oregon Department of Justice. Ms. Stetz-Waters will speak on bias law and roles for practitioners.

The conference will also feature multiple Zoom breakout rooms that will enable attendees to meet judges from around the state and various jurisdictions, experienced practitioners, and representatives of statewide bar associations and other legal organizations.

To participate in the conference, you will need a Zoom account. During the CLE registration process, you will be asked for the email address connected with your Zoom account. You can participate in the conference using the free version of Zoom. You do not need to purchase the paid version to access this CLE.
