2023 SPEAKER SERIES: PRACTICING INCLUSIVITY
Each calendar year, the Queen’s Bench monthly CLEs and events focus on a different theme. In 2023, the theme of Queen’s Bench lunchtime CLE series is “Practicing Inclusivity.” At our monthly, free CLEs open to all, you will hear touching stories from women-identified professionals (including but not limited to lawyers) who have overcome extraordinary challenges to become leaders in our state.
Suzanne Rowe has taught legal writing at the University of Oregon School of Law since 2000. She created and writes a monthly column,The Legal Writer, for the Oregon State Bar Bulletin, which takes a fresh look at writing issues. In her presentation, “Inclusive Writing in Law Practice,” Professor Rowe will discuss how to use the singular “they” in legal documents to achieve both inclusivity and clarity.
Queen’s Bench CLEs are now being held in-person at the Multnomah County Central Courthouse, and are also simulcast on WebEx, the second Tuesday of the month from noon until 1 PM. Lunch can be ordered on the Queen’s Bench website when placed by the Friday before the luncheon.
