The Veterans Law Clinic opened its doors in January 2007. The response to this clinic has been outstanding statewide, and the purpose and benefits of a Veterans Law Clinic located in a state with such a large veteran and military personnel population, and in close proximity to a major veterans hospital, is obvious.
The Veterans Law Clinic is handling all types of claims at all stages of the VA claims adjudication process including judicial review. Under extensive supervision, law students assist veteran's and their families with the complexities and technical aspects of filing their claims with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs Regional Offices nationwide, the Board of Veterans Appeals, and the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
The Veterans Law Clinic has expanded in 2008-2009 to include two classes of students and two separate three credit letter graded courses totaling at least 32 students. The first class (Veterans Law I) teaches the fundamentals involved in advocating a claim at all stages of the VA claims adjudication process including the initial fact-finding stage at the VA regional office, up to and including the appellate stage which entails the Board of Veterans Appeals, as well as the United States Court of Veterans Claims. All students in Veterans Law I must put in 20 hours of classroom work and 100 hours of clinical work to fulfill the requirements of the course. The second class (Veterans Law II) entails students getting involved directly in veteran’s cases at all stages of the VA claims adjudication process, including judicial review, utilizing all skills taught to them in the Veterans Law I course. All students in Veterans Law II must put in 125 hours of clinical work to fulfill the requirements of that course.
