Veterans suffer from problems related to their service that many people overlook, including evictions, child-custody disputes, credit problems and even wrongful denial of benefits they have earned. Many of these issues can be solved only with the assistance of a lawyer. Metropolitan bar associations are uniquely qualified to help veterans because of their access to community support. During this interactive virtual session, metro bar leaders will discuss how to mobilize lawyers to organize, implement and coordinate a veterans’ legal clinic to meet the pro bono legal needs of veterans in their respective communities.
