Date: Wednesday, January 23rd 2019
Location: World Trade Center, Mezzanine, 26 SW Salmon, Portland
Credit Type(s): General Credit
Whether you represent plaintiffs or defendants in real estate transactions or landlord/tenant issues, this CLE is for you. Bob Joondeph, Executive Director for Disability Rights Oregon recently noted that "Disability touches everyone."* This CLE will cover accessibility provisions under both the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as the Fair Housing Act. Our panel of experts will also provide their insight on how you can best help your clients in complying with the spirit and intent of these two civil rights statutes, which aim to provide persons experiencing disabilities opportunity and choice in our society. As the number of Americans with disabilities continues to grow as our population ages and veterans return home with newfound disabilities, our experts will also discuss how embracing persons with disabilities is key to long-term success for all property owners and landlords.
Join us on January 23 for this timely topic given Portland's real estate boom. Our panelists will include: Ted Wenk, Managing Attorney, Disability Rights Oregon; Matthew Serres, Housing Attorney, Disability Rights Oregon; and Matthew Ellis, Law Office of Matthew C. Ellis.
