About the Minnesota Workers’ Compensation Deskbook
The Minnesota Workers’ Compensation Deskbook is an essential resource for everyone practicing workers’ compensation in Minnesota. More than 20 chapters cover every aspect of workers’ compensation law in detail – plus the book is filled with practice advice for both petitioner and defense counsel. The Deskbook cites more than 4,500 cases and statutes, correctly analyzes these citations, as well as provides the most precise and up-to-date information available. You'll not only receive correct legal analysis, but you'll also receive very practical practice tips and pointers. The Deskbook has become the authoritative reference for everyone in the field, even quoted by the Minnesota Supreme Court. For ease of use it includes a detailed table of contents, detailed subject index and table of authorities. (If you don’t own the Deskbook, you can purchase a copy at the seminar or call Minnesota CLE at 651-227-8266 or 800-759-8840 to order by phone.)
