CBA’s Workers’ Compensation Certification Program

The Workers’ Compensation Section of the Connecticut Bar Association has created the Workers’ Compensation Certification Program to help the public to identify attorneys who are competent, experienced, and skilled in the area of workers’ compensation law and to raise the level of practice in this area of the law.

The Legal Specialization Screening Committee and the Rules Committee of the Superior Court have approved the CBA’s certification program. This approval process insures that our program has met the court’s strict standards. See the links below for more information.

Attorneys who have attained the designation "Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist" have satisfied the following requirements:

  • demonstrated that no less than twenty-five percent of their total practice has been in the area of workers’ compensation law;
  • engaged in the practice of law in Connecticut for at least five years and been a member in good standing of each bar in which the attorney is admitted;
  • maintained a malpractice policy with minimum limits of $300,000 per occurrence;
  • have a satisfactory disciplinary and malpractice history;
  • participated in a minimum of thirty-six hours of continuing legal education activities in the area of workers’ compensation law in the three years prior to filing the application;
  • have a minimum of five references from other attorneys knowledgeable regarding the applicant’s practice and competence; and
  • have passed a one-day written examination.
  • Only attorneys who have been formally certified may use the designation "Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist" on business cards, letterhead, and other printed advertisements.
