A Treatise of Wyoming Workers’ Compensation Law

A Treatise of Wyoming Workers’ Compensation Law seeks both to introduce Wyoming workers’ compensation students to the law of their own jurisdiction, and to provide a continuing resource to those same students as they embark on workers’ compensation legal practice after graduation.

A heavy emphasis is placed upon the American Bar Association’s Model Code of Judicial Conduct.
