In order to involve more people in the panel registration process, we are asking that you distinguish between a fully planned panel and an idea for a panel. We consider a fully planned panel to be a submission where you have panelists in mind and have reached out to potential speakers. Alternatively, an idea for a panel consists of a subject you would like to see during the conference.
If you believe your panel should qualify for CLE credit, please make sure to include sufficient information to support an application to the Oregon bar for CLE credit. PIELC organizers will be using your panel description to justify application for CLE credit. Consequently, including information that responds directly to what the bar requires is crucial for attaining Bar credit. In particular, the bar requires that the panel “have significant intellectual or practical content with the primary objective of increasing the participant’s professional competence as a lawyer.” Additionally, the panel “must deal primarily with substantive legal issues, legal skills, practice issues, or legal ethics and professionalism, or access to justice.”In addition to sending this form, please feel free to send us any additional documents to email@example.com. Let us know if you have any further questions.
Submission deadline for priority consideration is December 21, 2018. Panels submitted after the priority deadline will be considered in full, but availability of time and space will also factor into acceptance. Submitting panels prior to the priority deadline is highly encouraged.
*If you are interested in submitting an idea for a workshop at PIELC 2019, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
