Oregon Elder and Child Abuse Reporting

This program will cover mandatory child and elder abuse reporting laws applicable to Oregon attorneys, and will address the concerns, requirements, and themes regarding what lawyers are expected and obligated to do in their practice about issues arising with the reporting of suspected elder and child abuse. In this course we will closely examine the philosophy behind reporting malfeasance in general, the significant distinctions between lawyers and other professionals in what is expected and what is allowed as to reporting, the burdens and benefits of confidentiality and communication privileges, the effect of statutory immunities for reporting, the relevant Oregon reporting statutes and their legislative history, and case law in Oregon and in other states interpreting statutory commands. We will also discuss the details and particular circumstances in which reporting is required, how the mechanics of making a report work for and against the lawyer and the client, and where exceptions and omissions in the law exist. Our discussion aims to assist attorneys in understanding how mandatory reporting translates into real life practice.
