Description

Oregon law makes lawyers mandatory reporters for both child abuse and elder abuse. There are two separate statutes that govern those requirements, and we’re going to review them both in this program. Be careful as you evaluate the two laws. They seem very similar in many respects, and they are. But they’re not identical and it’s important to be aware of the differences.
