Maritime Law Event Explores Longshore Act

July 09, 2009

On July 17, the University of San Francisco Maritime Law Journal will sponsor its annual continuing legal education (CLE) event at the USF School of Law in conjunction with the Longshore Institute, a leading source of information on the U.S. Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act.

This one-day seminar, which is open to attorneys, insurance professionals, and law students, will provide a detailed explanation of the Longshore Act and its extensions. Six CLE credits are available to participants.

"Every year the Maritime Law Journal staff looks forward to our annual CLE event," said Volume 21 Editor-in-Chief Brian A. Carideo '09. "It gives us a chance to meet practitioners and keeps us connected with the maritime and admiralty law community."

Topics that will be covered in detail are recent court decisions affecting Longshore Act claims; situs, status, and concurrent jurisdiction, including present judicial interpretations; permanent disability requirements as well as calculation of scheduled disabilities and loss of wage-earning capacity; death claims and dependent benefits; third-party claims, including the rights and obligations of employer and claimant; and occupational disease cases.

Printed materials, refreshments, and lunch will be offered. To register, contact the Maritime Law Journal at usfmlj.me@gmail.com or (415) 422-2766.
