Professor Michael Duff was nominated to become a fellow of the College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers. The CWCL was established to honor those attorneys who have distinguished themselves in their practice in the field of workers’ compensation. Individuals are nominated for the outstanding traits they have developed in their practice of twenty years, or longer, representing plaintiffs, defendants, serving as judges, or acting for the benefit of all in education, overseeing agencies and developing legislation. These individuals have to convince their peers, the bar, bench and public that they possess the highest professional qualifications and ethical standards, character, integrity, professional expertise and leadership. They have to convince the Board of Governors of the College that they have a commitment to fostering and furthering the objectives of the College and have shown significant evidence of scholarship, teaching, lecturing, and/or distinguished published writings on Workers’ Compensation or related fields of law.
Professor Duff was nominated by a past president of the National Association of Workers’ Compensation Judiciary. Should he be selected, Professor Duff will join a very exclusive group of fellows, and will be the first ever fellow to come from Wyoming.
