Note: Worth two hours of ethics MCLE credit
The legal marketplace is changing. Consumers are now demanding or can only afford limited legal representation. So too is the definition of the workplace. Due to the downturn in the economy or the desire to work independently, lawyers are working from home and/or maintaining virtual offices. In this program, our panelists - Sheila Blackford from the Professional Liability Fund, and Helen Hierschbiel from the Oregon State Bar, will discuss the ethics and other practical considerations of alternative fee agreements, unbundling of legal services, and working from home and/or maintaining virtual offices.
