Whenever I am asked to give a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Seminar for my fellow attorneys, I try and put my best effort into both the live presentation and the written materials. I recently did a Disability Claim video CLE for Lawline, the nation’s top online CLE producer, and it is clear to me that online CLE for attorneys is a fantastic option for those who do not have the time (can anyone identify!) to attend a live lecture.
The video CLE was entitled "Disability Insurance Claims Primer: The Plaintiff’s Perspective", and the presentation focused on both the law and practical pointers involving private disability income insurance policies for professionals and employer based long term disability claims governed by ERISA. Thankfully, it is getting top reviews from lawyers around the country.
The presentation and PowerPoint materials follow a hypothetically disabled trial attorney, " Atticus Finch" , and the reasons he can no longer do one or more of the "material and substantial" duties of his profession.
It also touches on Short Term Disability, New York Workers’ Compensation claims, and Social Security Disability claims. About the only thing it does not touch on is Zadroga 9/11 Act claims, but then again the Zadroga Act wasn’t law yet!
Like all my CLE presentations, I do not get paid for either the presentation or any re-broadcast. I consider it a way to give back to the profession which has given me so much satisfaction over the years. I just finished a second Lawline CLE presentation on a brand new federal statute which should be appearing on a laptop near you shortly!
So if you need some extra CLE credit, pull out your laptop in the comfort of your own home, and check out my Disability Insurance Claims Primer, or one of the other great Lawline CLE courses.
