The American Bar Association Veterans Legal Services Initiative Commission and the Standing Committee on Legal Assistance for Military Personnel will co-host a free webinar, "Establishing and Enhancing Legal Clinics to Serve Veterans," at 1 p.m. on Dec. 14.
The seminar is designed to inspire and assist civil legal aid organizations, law schools and bar associations in creating legal clinics to serve veterans in their communities. It will consist of a panel discussion, moderated by Antonia Fasanelli and including panelists Joel Teitelbaum, Patricia Roberts and Sara Sommerstrom, who will provide instruction on how to establish legal clinics in or near VA medical centers, how to establish a legal clinic as a medical legal partnership and how to create law school clinics that serve veterans. The discussion will identify VA medical centers in need of legal clinics and examples of successful urban and rural models around the country.
