ROBERT W. ENTENMANN VETERANS LAW CLINIC

MAURICE A. DEANE SCHOOL OF LAW

 
General Information
Description of ServiceHelp veterans obtain disability (and thus, often, health care) benefits and apply for discharge upgrades. Students may help veterans submit disability claims to the Department of Veterans Affairs, work on appeals of denied claims, and help veterans obtain increases in disability ratings, for cases in which increases are justified by a veteran’s service record and health status. Students also may help veterans upgrade other-than-honorable discharges from the military so that these veterans become eligible for disability and health care benefits. Working alongside physicians, other clinicians and experienced attorneys, students help veterans with service-connected disabilities establish that their disabling conditions are service-connected. The Clinic Practicum is part of Starbucks’ Military Mondays — an innovative public-private partnership that engages community veterans in conversation and provides free legal counsel at nearby Starbucks locations.
