  |   CLE Hours: 6.0 Hours, including 2.0 Ethics

This program will be held virtually. 

We call this annual seminar “Quirky Issues” because we try to cover unusual issues that a practitioner is likely to encounter, but which are not adequately covered in other CLE programs throughout the year.  Join us on this journey into some high-level nuances of the Workers’ Compensation practice!

Registration includes seminar materials in electronic format and 6.0 CLE hours (including 2.0 ethics). Please note that 2.0 CME hours are approved.
