How and Why to Volunteer for the Veterans Consortium #ProBono Project

On Memorial Day, think about providing pro bono services to our veterans. There are many benefits to doing so (e.g. you can get free training) but mostly - it's the right thing to do!

From the Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Project website:

IF: you are an attorney interested in our program, we will provide you with:
  • A day-long training class on veterans' law issues.
  • When you accept a case referred from the Program, we will provide you with the following services:
    • A comprehensive analysis of the appellant's case as a guideline for the appeal;
    • Extensive legal research materials, including a CD-ROM with an on-line research capability;
    • A mentoring attorney to assist you in formulating your litigation strategy;
    • A case monitor, to ensure that no deadlines are overlooked during the appeals process; and
    • We will take your phone calls and we wll answer your questions.

      If you are interested in volunteering you must attend a day-long training.
