From the Editor: This special issue focuses on some of the significant changes made by the 2013 Oregon Legislature. Bills are listed by area of law. Some bills pertain to more than one practice area, so practitioners are encouraged to look through all the sections.
The new legislation takes effect January 1, 2014, unless otherwise noted. In addition the PLF published “2013 Oregon Legislative Session – ‘Emergency Legislation'” in the September issue of In Brief, focusing on some of the bills that became effective last year. Those bills are NOT reprinted in this issue, so practitioners are encouraged to consult that document as well.
The following practice areas are covered in this special issue:
Civil Procedure and Litigation
Consumer and Debtor-Creditor Law
Domestic Relations and Juvenile Law
Estate Administration, Elder Law, and Trust Law
Financial Institutions Law
Labor and Employment Law
Military and Veterans Law
