The Practising Law Institute is presenting a free webcast seminar from New York entitled Social Security Disability 2013: From Administrative Proceedings to Federal Practice, on March 19, 2013 at 2:00 pm Eastern.

Disabled children and adults need your help! Learn federal practice as you learn how to represent disabled children and adults who need your assistance following denials of their claims by the Social Security Administration.

After denial of an initial disability claim, claimants frequently find a possible appeal to be confusing, difficult, and even overwhelming. Many claimants cannot afford legal representation and must navigate the appeals process on their own.

By attending this free PLI program, you will learn about social security disability claims, and how to represent disabled children and adults in their appeals from denials of their claims by the Social Security Administration. You will also learn about federal practice, within the context of social security disability, which will have broader application to anyone practicing in the federal courts.

Regardless of your area of practice, this program is a perfect vehicle for attorneys interested in learning more about federal practice and social security disability and getting involved in pro bono opportunities with legal service organizations.

What you will learn

At this three- hour program, you will learn the basics of Social Security law and practice, in the context of federal practice, including how to gather and analyze medical evidence, the examination of parties and witnesses, drafting effective pre-hearing memoranda, and oral argument. Topics to be covered will include:

  • Overview of social security benefits and the Administrative Law Judge Hearing
  • Agency and federal court review in social security cases
  • Working as pro bono counsel: Successful pro bono models used by law firms and in-house legal departments; how individual attorneys can get involved; how legal services supports volunteer attorneys
Who should attend

All attorneys (whether practicing in a law firm, in-house, or in solo practice) interested in learning about social security disability, expanding their knowledge of federal practice, and assisting disabled children and adults in their appeals.
