Guest Speaker: Former Judge Steiner
via Zoom

3/13/2024 Registration

Join us for a “view from the bench” presentation from recently retired Judge Mark Steiner.  Judge Steiner represented injured workers for many years before becoming a WCLJ in the Buffalo District.  His presentation will focus on advice for young attorneys appearing before the Workers’ Compensation Board from the WCLJ perspective.  He will also be available for questions.  This is your opportunity to hear directly from a Judge about what is helping and hurting your case and advocacy for your clients.

Practicing in the area of Workers’ Compensation requires familiarity with the Workers’ Compensation statute, corresponding regulations, Appellate Division and Court of Appeals case law, and Administrative Board Panel Decisions along with the guidance, publications, and other documents from the Workers’ Compensation Board – including subject numbers, treatment guidelines, impairment guidelines, FAQs, etc.  We recognize that our young and new members may be struggling to learn all of this information and likely feel confused navigating the day to day demands of this practice. 

From this background, the IWBA's Young Attorney Section encourages involvement and education opportunities for our members.  The Young Attorney Section of the IWBA is open to all members that have been admitted for less than 10 years or who have been practicing in the area of Workers’ Compensation Law for less than ten years.

The Young Attorney Section meets via zoom.  Each meeting will include an educational session followed by a Q&A session with an experienced attorney. This will be a “no such thing as a dumb question” environment and participation in the dialogue is encouraged.  It will also be an opportunity to get to know colleagues across the state and to become more involved in the IWBA.
