Students work with veterans who want to upgrade their military discharge status to be eligible for benefits from the Veterans Administration. Review requests typically involve minor blemishes – or the timing of them – on military records. Students help veterans explain the basis for their requests for review and to navigate the administrative process.
“The Veterans Discharge Upgrade Review Clinic is a way for students to give back to the veterans community while gaining crucial hands-on, client interaction experience they will carry with them after graduating from law school.”
– Brad Steffen, clinic director and former Air Force Judge Advocate General Corps prosecutor and defense attorney
