Workers' Compensation (Self-Paced Tutorial)   

Gain essential skills and a solid understanding of one of the fastest-growing areas in law.

Anyone considering a career as a paralegal should have a firm understanding of workers' compensation law. The reason is simple: You're far more likely to be involved in workers' compensation cases than criminal law cases, intellectual property cases, or even business disputes. The only types of cases that are more common are personal injury or medical malpractice, both of which have very strong ties to workers' compensation law.

Knowing the ins and outs of workers' compensation is an absolutely essential skill for any paralegal. Having a solid foundation in this field of law is also a great way to land a job with a private law firm or local, state, or federal governments. This course presents workers' compensation in a straightforward and enjoyable manner. It follows up on other criminal law and legal nurse consulting courses that have earned strong praise from students.
