Social Justice Tuesday: Legal Aid, Law Students and Low-Income Veterans

William H. Gates Hall
133
12:30 PM - 1:20 PM

“12.44 % of Washington adults are veterans and the Department of Veterans Affairs is the second largest federal department in our government, yet few public interest lawyers have the chance to learn about the unique legal and cultural considerations that affect so many of our fellow persons and so much of our government. 22 veterans commit suicide everyday across our nation, and lawyers have an essential role to play in saving those lives. Please join three recent law school graduates and current legal fellows as they discuss:
•Legal and cultural considerations for representing low-income veterans
•Existing organizations that assist low-income veterans
•How law students can get involved with Equal Justice Works, AmeriCorps, and Northwest Justice Project to help veterans and gain legal experience”
