The new AALNC webinar series is live! As announced at our Annual Business Meeting in Pittsburgh, beginning this July we will have monthly webinars on a variety of hot topics. For our initial offerings, we recruited several dynamic speakers from the 2010 National Education Conference. So, if you were unable to join us in Pittsburgh, or if you were unable to attend a specific presentation, you now have the opportunity to do so through our live webinars!
Additionally, we will be offering an entirely new session in September on screening medical malpractice cases. This session will be presented by an experienced LNC and attorney from a plaintiff firm in NY. The speakers will offer valuable tips to LNCs on screening cases for merit.
