NEW JUDGES’ BOOT CAMP



ATTENTION ALL NEW ADJUDICATORS

BOOT CAMP IS ONLY A MONTH AWAY!

 

             2020 is here, and the year is passing quickly. With each passing day, excitement is growing because the New Judges’ Boot Camp is only month away. The agenda is set, the speakers are confirmed, and registrations are coming in. Have you sent in your registration and booked your hotel? Don’t miss out! Register today to attend the second New Judges’ Boot Camp for new adjudicators on March 5 & 6, 2020, in Nashville, Tennessee.

            The prospect of becoming an adjudicator of workers’ compensation disputes can be daunting. The New Judges’ Boot Camp is designed to make that transition smooth. The program is developed and geared toward newer adjudicators with three or less years of experience. Registered new judges will hear from sitting trial level and appellate level adjudicators, state regulators, and academics, who will cover a wide range of topics that will impact an adjudicator’s day-to-day work. The curriculum includes sessions discussing the origins of workers’ compensation laws, the transition from an advocate to an adjudicator, judicial writing, conducting hearings and handling discovery disputes, weighing evidence and ruling on objections, and dealing with unrepresented litigants.

            Information regarding the agenda, program cost, registration, and accommodations can be obtained from the NAWCJ website. If you have any questions about the “boot camp,” please contact me at pamela.johnson@tn.gov. Please encourage your newer adjudicators to attend this training.

We look forward to seeing you in Music City.
