Hot Tips in Workers’ Compensation


Join the MSBA Negligence Insurance and Workers’ Compensation Section for the newest livestream presentation of 2021 Hot Tips in Workers’ Compensation, on Thursday, May 13th!

Get the latest from experienced faculty on topics such as:  

  • Why Settlements, Stipulations and Emergency Hearings are Rejected, with Commissioner Schadt of the The Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission
  • The Collins Case – Is Settlement Dead?
  • How experienced Workers’ Compensation lawyers can help new lawyers get started

7 hours of CLE credit will be offered by the surrounding MCLE states and if you can’t attend the livestream program, it will be available on-demand on our MSBA CLE catalog.  

We’re integrating the Zoom platform into our livestream programs! Participants will now be able to use the chat box and pose questions to the faculty during the presentation. As our live streams will use Zoom, you will have the same video and audio functions. Please keep your phone or computer muted unless you’re speaking. You may wish to turn off your video camera to allow the attendees to focus on the presenters. Use the chat box to ask questions and include which faculty member you’d like to address the question.
