What are some practical ways a small firm can accommodate an attorney or staff member with a disability? What are the ethical concerns and best practices for lawyers who have an unplanned medical emergency? What resources are available for attorneys with disabilities? Although the focus of this program will be primarily on solo practitioners and those in smaller firms, this CLE is for any lawyer who is disabled or who has the possibility of becoming temporarily or permanently disabled and the firms and departments who employ them—in other words—everyone.
Join us Wednesday, October 15 from 3 to 5 pm at Stoel Rives, 900 SW Fifth Avenue, 19th Floor, in Portland, for this thought-provoking program. We anticipate receiving the following OSB MCLE credits: 1.5 Access to Justice, and .5 Ethics.
Cost is $20 if registration is received by October 10, or $25 at the door if space is available.
Register here if you wish to pay by debit or credit card.
If you prefer to pay by check, please download the form below and mail it with your check, payable to OWLS, to PO Box 40393, Portland, OR 97240.
At the Corner of Law Practice and Disability
We thank our co-sponsors the Multnomah Bar Association, the OSB Professional Liability Fund, the OSB Disability Law Section, Oregon Minority Lawyers Association and the OHSU Office of Affirmative Action & Equal Opportunity.
The Professional Liability Fund will film the program and make it available at a later date to all Oregon attorneys.
This program serves as a brief beginning of a broader discussion for bar members on how best to make law practice truly welcoming to lawyers and staff members with disabilities. Immediately following the presentation, you will have an opportunity to discuss next steps during a reception generously hosted by Stoel Rives.
