In a recent article, Madison Magazine spoke with UW Law Alum Nia Enemuoh-Trammell about her experiences working in the public sector.
Enemuoh-Trammell is an administrative law judge for Wisconsin Workers Compensation, the nation's first compensation program, enacted in 1911, that serves as an international model.
The program's main functions are to keep litigation costs down by monitoring compliance with the Workers Compensation Act and to oversee the timeliness and accuracy of payments related to the 30,000-plus workplace injuries annually reported. What makes the program so unique is that judges and staff are available to take questions from claimants, employers and insurance companies every day.
After graduating from UW Law School, Enemuoh-Trammell worked at a prominent law firm for nine years before switching gears to work with colleagues who share her passion and have a sense of civil service that transcends personal ambitions and gain. She also works with families and the courts on child abuse issues as a court-appointed special advocate and has served in UW Law's LEO Mentorship Program as a LEO Mentor.
"So many people gave so much to me growing up. Now it's my turn," she says.
