Each clinical semester begins with intensive classes taught on-campus which may include weekend days.
The Veterans Law Clinic will educate students regarding the substantive, procedural, practical, and ethical elements that arise in the direct representation of veterans and/or active military personnel in general civil and quasi-criminal matters. Students will gain instruction in the necessary legal skills and knowledge involved in the general practice of law through the representation of this population: client interviewing, legal analysis, drafting legal documents, motion practice, courtroom presentation, collaboration with other professionals, professionalism, and general case management while providing a service to our heroes.
