Student Legal and Mediation Services (SLMS) at Portland State University presents "Wanna Party?" - A discussion about social host liability. Portland-area attorney, Eric McCormick, will be the featured presenter.
Social host liability can be incurred by someone who throws a party where alcohol is served. Generally, the party host can be held financially liable if a guest injures or kills him or herself or others. Over 30 states, including Oregon and Washington, have either statutes or case law on the books regarding a party thrower's liability. Come find out about Oregon's social host liability laws and learn how you can minimize your risk when you throw parties.
