Attorneys who participate receive free training in exchange for a commitment to handle at least one appeal that is before the Veterans Court. Attorneys with little or no prior veterans’ law experience are generally able to capably represent an appellant before the Veterans Court provided they attend the training seminar and maintain contact with their mentor. Most cases can be completed in 50 to 60 hours; many cases may require fewer hours. A typical case lasts about 1 year from the time that the attorney enters the case. Some cases may be resolved more quickly and some may take longer.
These trainings tend to fill up quickly, so register asap.
The in-person training is in Seattle; recently webcasts of this training have been added in five other West Coast cities. All volunteers should register through the online form (which has "Seattle" in the title) and then contact the Program to indicate your actual city, if other than Seattle, at Daniella@nvlsp.org)
