The Mizzou Law Veterans Clinic will host an open house for the public on Saturday, April 27 from 10:30 am until 1:00 pm in 119 Hulston Hall. The clinic moved into its new space in January on the main floor of the law library, which provides better access for its clients.
“Our new clinical space is a dream come true, enabling Mizzou Law to reach more veterans in meaningful ways, on behalf of a grateful nation,” says Angela Drake, director of the Veterans Clinic.
The university’s in-house design team created a space that is comfortable for all veterans, including those with post-traumatic stress disorder.
“We accomplished this through the use of intuitive design, consideration of the user’s sight lines and orientation in the space, and the use of natural light and colors, as well as strategic selection of finishes and their applications,” said Jessie Crocker, project support coordinator with MU Design Services.
The clinic has partnered with the Missouri Veterans Commission, the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital, and a visiting neurologist who will use clinical space for consulting appointments. The number of students enrolled in the clinic has doubled for the next academic year.
During the open house, the clinic will be presenting the King Award at 12:30 p.m., named for retired administrative assistant Amy King, who was critical to the clinic’s early success. The clinic gives this award to two students every year.
