Attorney Matt Lager Guest Lectures at Penn State Law
We at Bernard Stuczynski Barnett & Lager are proud to announce that, last week, our own Attorney (and Penn State Alumni) Matthew Lager guest lectured at Penn State Law for 2L and 3L law students who were taking Professor Erickson’s Workers’ Compensation course. As a former student of Professor Erickson’s Workers’ Compensation class (who previously held the distinction of achieving the highest grade in this course among his peers when he was a student), Attorney Lager was delighted to head back to State College and share his practice experience representing injured workers in Pennsylvania.
Because the course focuses on an overview of workers’ compensation law nationally, Attorney Lager spoke about Pennsylvania-specific legal issues from the perspective of an injured worker, sharing practice tips for helping to fight insurance companies. Attorney Lager also spoke to students about how the workers’ compensation litigation process affects injured workers and their families.
