Advanced Topics on The Camp Lejeune Justice Act
Join us for another NCAJ CLE in response to the passage of the PACT Act/Camp Lejeune Justice Act.
Program Chair Mona Lisa Wallace has gathered some of the state and nation’s top litigators for insights on the use of experts in these cases. You’ll hear from individuals with a depth of knowledge and experience in researching and litigating these matters that stretches back decades.
We’re excited to kick off the day with legislative insights from Linda Lipsen, CEO of the American Association for Justice. Over lunch, we’ll welcome nationally recognized leaders in the PACT Act/Camp Lejeune Justice Act efforts — Jerry Ensminger and Mike Partain — for a conversation on how we got here and what’s ahead for affected veterans and their families.
The access and perspectives you’ll gain from these top attorneys and experts will serve you and your clients well as you pursue justice for those who have already given so much to our nation.
28th Annual Workers’ Comp Roundtable
Please join the NCAJ workers’ compensation section for the annual Round Table CLE event. This event is for section members only which not only allows us to learn about cutting edge issues but also discuss our case loads in a secure environment. There will be extended sessions to allow the open discuss of any/all ideas/questions that you have.
There will be an overview of the present state of the NCGS 97-29(c) extended benefits cases. We will also delve into the different type of subrogation liens and which ones to pay attention to. Further, we’ll have a session that fulfills your mental health requirement as well as another session that includes a technology component and will teach us how to calculate a client’s SSDi offset. That last part will help you determine whether an attorney fee can be gained and that fee’s effect on your client’s overall benefits package.
