Plan For October Veterans Consortium Pro Bono TrainingThe next scheduled training for the Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program is on October 19, 2012 in Washington DC; registration will open in Auguest. This program can lead not only to a large amount of free CLE, but a career-changing opportunity to "do well by doing good".
On-Demand TrainingPersons eligible for Veterans Administration benefits sometimes require professional assistance in staking their claim. A well-structured claim can also assist the VA in efficient administration. Now you can pick up the basics while earning credit:
- Introduction to Veterans Benefits - by Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles. This one-hour program is a good place to start.
- Advocating for Veterans - the Basics on Benefits, Discharge Upgrades and Cultural Competency - by Practising Law Institute. This is a longer, more detailed program.
