About the Symposium
Join us for a half-day program devoted to the legal needs of veterans of the United States Armed Forces. The issue is especially relevant to New York City, home to a quarter-million veterans. Lawyers can play a tremendous role in assisting both veterans and their families.
It is widely known that disabled veterans are entitled to — and rely upon — Department of Veterans Affairs benefits. One panel will focus on the claims process, and another will highlight other important legal issues confronting veterans, and how lawyers can best serve them.
Representatives from private practice, the New York State Division of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans Assistance Project at the City Bar Justice Center, the Veteran Advocacy Project at the Urban Justice Center, and the New York Legal Assistance Group will take part in this important and timely discussion sponsored by BLS Law Students for Veterans’ Rights.
The program is free for those who do not want CLE credit. All attendees, however, must RSVP.
This course provides three CLE credits in the State of New York. The credits are transitional and non-transitional and the category is Professional Practice.
