Understanding Child Abuse and Your Reporting Obligations
            This presentation will cover the basics of the Oregon child abuse and neglect reporting law for mandatory reporters, which includes all lawyers. It will also address an area of child abuse and neglect that drives most child dependency cases, namely parental substance abuse. This will be a practical discussion designed to inform the judgments lawyers are required to make, and the steps they are required to take, to fulfill their duty to assist in protecting children from abuse.
