Workers’ Comp Summit: Sept 22-23, 2021 – Samoset Resort, Rockport, ME


PLENARY: From the Bench

Thursday, September 23rd, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A Conversation with the ALJ’s

What’s it all about? The Administrative Law Judge sits at the tipping point of litigated cases, helping steer the process to resolution, hearing the evidence, and rendering decisions. We close the 2021 return of Comp Summit with two ALJ’s sharing their views and fielding your questions. At first blush, this is of primary interest to attorneys in attendance, but the reality is that it appeals to adjusters, paralegals, employers, and everyone interested in policymaking and a smooth functioning system.  

Why you’ll want to participate in this session. 

  • Discover some golden nuggets on section 312, petitions for review, and the appellate process. 
  • Discuss the impact of Covid 19 on the day-to-day functioning of the system and some of the challenges of on-screen vs. live hearings. 
  • Whether comp veteran or rookie, you’ll walk away with some best practices to achieving fair outcomes for those you represent.
