In 2017, Congress passed the Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017, which represented one of the most significant statutory changes to affect the Department of Veterans Affairs in decades. The new law will modernize the current claims and appeals processes. The department anticipates the new system will streamline resolutions, with added safeguards to ensure protections for veterans.
The Fifth Annual Veterans Clinic Symposium will address key factors in the decision-making process under the new law. As the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day approaches, the clinic’s goal is to provide veterans, lawyers, medical practitioners and others who serve veterans with the navigational tools necessary to quickly deliver benefits to our nation’s most deserving population. Analysis of the new law, coupled with perspectives from veterans, doctors, attorneys and decision makers will be provided.
