I’ve got a full slate of speaking appearances coming up beginning late next month. First, on August 23, I’ll be moderating a panel on workers’ compensation opt out issues at the annual conference of the National Association of Workers’ Compensation Judiciary in Orlando, FL. On Friday, September 23, I’ll be discussing a wide variety of issues at an academic conference titled “The Demise of the Grand Bargain” hosted by Rutgers Law School on its Camden, NJ campus. The following Monday, September 26, I’ll again be speaking on ERISA and workers’ compensation opt-out issues at the annual convention of the Workers’ Injury Law & Advocacy Group at the Boulders Resort in Carefree, AZ. On October 21, I’ll be speaking at the ClassCrits Law Professors’ Annual Conference in Chicago, IL on the relationship between workers’ compensation and compulsory arbitration as mechanisms that can potentially shift injury costs from industries to the general public or to the victims of injury. Finally, I’ll be in Bloomington, IN from November 17-19 participating in the Labor Law Group‘s commentaries on the ALI Restatement of Employment Law.
By November, the Laramie, Wyoming snow will be setting in and I probably won’t see anyone out of state again until early June. So, you see, I have to make the fall count.
