Veterans Clinic Symposium – 2019

This year’s Symposium will examine some of the most dramatic and troubling legal questions faced by military and veterans’ lawyers in recent history. Presenters will explain their strategies and decisions in several fascinating cases with far-reaching consequences for our nation. From ethics issues arising out of the 9/11 tragedy and the death penalty cases pending in Guantanamo Bay to the recent Supreme Court decisions exploring the parameters of federal benefits law, our speakers will inspire advocates to zealously represent their clients’ interests at every turn. Many veterans who prepared for and served in conflicts from WWII to the current Global War on Terror are in need of legal help.  We cordially invite you to attend the Veteran Clinic’s Sixth Annual Symposium to hear and learn from those advocates who have been in the trenches and secured tremendous results for our nation’s military and veteran community.
