Vet Law Forum 2014 is a learning and relationship building event specifically designed for law students and lawyers who serve (or desire to serve) Veterans and their families on a pro-bono basis. Guest speakers, panels including members of Veterans Service Organizations and experts in Veterans benefits law will speak about how to effectively work with VA. Participants will learn about the outstanding pro-bono work being done nationwide by legal aid groups, law schools, and other entities which assist Veterans with filing Fully Developed Claims (FDCs) in order to obtain the benefits they have earned as well as help Veterans resolve personal legal issues.
Vet Law Forum participants will have the opportunity to communicate directly with organizations that have established legal services programs for Veterans’ benefits and for assisting Veterans with civil and criminal legal needs. This will be a great opportunity to meet with other advocates who provide Veterans with legal services through law school clinics or other legal aid organizations. Please take a look at our exciting agenda here.
We look forward to you joining us to learn about VA’s programs to support the provision of legal services for Veterans and to share ideas for partnering with VA. In addition, you may be interested in a related event, the National Conference on Law Clinics Serving Veterans*, on April 3rd and 4th in Washington, DC.
