In celebration of Pro Bono Week, The Veterans Consortium (TVC) is partnering with local volunteers and DC area law students to hold three, one-day pop-up legal clinics to serve the needs of veterans. These clinics will be held in three locations, simultaneously throughout Washington, DC.
Transition & Care Management Center, DC VA Medical Center, 50 Irving Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20422
DC VAMC Women Veterans Health Clinic, DC VA Medical Center, 50 Irving Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20422
VA Community Resource and Referral Center (CRRC), 1500 Franklin St N.E., Washington, DC 20018
TVC seeks volunteer attorneys to work with volunteer law students at the Transition & Care Management Center Clinic. Volunteers will interview veterans, conduct issue spotlighting, and refer veterans to appropriate legal aid organizations. Areas of law may include veterans’ benefits, military discharge upgrades, family law, consumer law, landlord-tenant law, and employment law. Training and referral materials will be provided onsite. No prior experience is necessary.
Four attorney and two law student volunteers are needed for the Transition & Care Management Center Clinic. Attorneys and students interested in volunteering to participate in the clinic at the Transition & Care Management Center should contact Jeff Janicke, TVC Staff Attorney, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
