The Oregon State Bar Professionalism Committee and the Marion County Bar Association are pleased to invite all Marion County Bar Association members and local attorneys to attend a free CLE on Tuesday December 1, 2020 from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. via Zoom.
The COVID-19 virus is not only a contagion that poses the gravest public health crisis in American history, but the pandemic also presents an important public policy issue for all lawyers. As we navigate our way through stay-at-home orders and global shutdowns, and as our healthcare industry is pushed to its limit in response to the pandemic, some of us may wonder:
In the middle of a worldwide pandemic, how best can lawyers exude professionalism, and is mere civility enough?
While all legal matters may seem like emergencies in the moment, they must be viewed in the light of an actual health and economic crisis. Especially in a pandemic, professionalism should guide a lawyer’s judgment to treat each other with candor, civility, and kindness whenever humanly and reasonably possible. Panelists from the Oregon State Bar Professionalism Commission, the Honorable Kathleen Johnson and attorney Lisa Umscheid, will present and lead a discussion on these topics.
