An Introduction to Representing Veterans

Published by Mecklenburg County Bar


Summary

The introduction to Representing Veterans CLE is designed to prepare private lawyers who do not practice in this area of law to represent veterans in VA disability and other claims on a Pro Bono basis, through the LSSP Veterans Legal Services Project.

Topics Include:
• Basis Eligibility for VA Benefits, Dependency and Indemnity Compensation and Pensions
• VA Service-Connected Disability Claims and Benefits
