The Emory Law Volunteer Clinic for Veterans assists those who have served our country with legal issues, including claims for service-connected disability before the Veterans Administration and in subsequent appellate proceedings.
The Emory Law Volunteer Clinic for Veterans (Emory VCV) assists low-income military veterans and military spouses with discharge upgrades, disability benefits claims, powers of attorney, wills, and advance directives for healthcare. Emory VCV serves its clients with the assistance of local attorneys and supervised law student volunteers who are well-versed in veteran's law. We are raising money to help further the clinic and its important work.
