An Update on the Separation of the Sections from The State Bar
KENNETH M. SHEPPARD, ESQ.
San Francisco, California
I am excited to announce that the Sections of the State Bar (including the Workers’ Compensation Section) are becoming a new entity, likely at the beginning of 2018. This change will open a world of possibilities regarding what the Workers’ Compensation Section can do for our profession. It will allow us to increase the number of lawyers we reach and to fully embrace the technological advances now available for our work.
The good news is that after separation, you will continue to receive all of the services and benefits you have come to expect from the Workers’ Compensation Section. The better news is that without the regulatory limitations and costs associated with being in an agency of the State of California, we believe you will get better service, have greater ability to impact how the Section functions, and be far more satisfied with the new entity that serves you.
