Course Descriptions

Veterans Legal Practicum LAW-834

The Veterans Legal Practicum will combine substantive lectures with a skills practicum. The practicum will allow law students to hone their legal skills while providing free, quality representation to veterans of the United States Armed Forces in administrative proceedings. They will work directly with veterans on discharge upgrades in their first semester taking the course. If students enroll for a second semester, students will work on other substantive legal matters, possibly including disability compensation appeals in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) system.
