Nov 4/San Francisco, CA - #Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program Training

Veterans denied benefits by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) can appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.

Thousands of veterans or their survivors have filed appeals in the Court. Most cases involve claims for VA disability or death benefits. Unfortunately, for many veterans the promise of effective judicial review has proved elusive. A majority of those who appeal to the Court do not have a representative at the time they file their appeal.

Unrepresented veterans are at a significant disadvantage in litigating against the VA General Counsel’s Office, which represents VA in all Court proceedings. Mentally and physically disabled veterans may be especially disadvantaged.

Sponsor: Arnold & Porter LLP and the Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program
Location: One Embarcadero Center, San Francisco, CA
