Lecture topics included:

Jen presented an overview of PERA and MSRS pension benefits, how those benefits are coordinated with Minnesota workers’ compensation benefits, and important deadlines workers’ compensation practitioners need to be aware of.

The Minnesota Association for Justice (MAJ) was established in 1954 by a small group of lawyers dedicated to protecting the rights of the injured and accused. The MAJ was created to better represent the overall interests of their clients and their profession as well as to share information, trial strategies and to collectively influence legislation. The Minnesota Association for Justice is a dynamic, pro-active membership-driven organization dedicated to helping members build their practice, better represent their clients and strengthen the profession. MAJ’s lobbyists and public relations staff monitor legislation, develop strategies and effectively represent its position to legislators and policy-makers.
