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. 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 3 credit hour course includes a two-hour class and 9 clinic office hours each week, as well an orientation on substantive veterans law.
