Veterans Law Clinic (5200)
Students participating in the Veterans Law Clinic will have the opportunity to represent military veterans and their families in disability cases and related matters. Students primarily will practice before the Department of Veterans Affairs to obtain veterans benefits for service-connected disabilities. The work will include opportunities for interviewing veterans and conducting educational presentations in Michigan and around the country, with Project SALUTE.
In addition to learning and practicing substantive veterans' law, students will have the opportunity to learn and develop more general lawyering skills such as client interviewing and counseling, advocacy writing, and negotiating.
This 4 credit hours course includes a two-hour class and 12 clinic office hours each week, as well an orientation on substantive veterans law. Law 2220, Evidence, is recommended, but not required.
