November 10, 2020 – Self-represented Parties: a View from the Bench
Please join Queen’s Bench at the federal courthouse (Portland) on November 10, 2020 at noon for three different judges’ perspectives on handling pro se litigants in and outside the courtroom. Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Patricia McGuire, Oregon Tax Court Judge Robert Manicke, and Magistrate Allison Boomer will discuss the complexities of decision making when pro se litigants appear before the court, as well as the judges’ top tips for what the lawyers representing the opposition should know and do in every case involving a pro se litigant.
Each calendar year, the Queen’s Bench luncheons and events focus on a different theme. During 2020, we will explore difficult legal decisions. Everyone is welcome – you need not be a member to attend our events.
