The legal needs of veterans are currently some of the most pressing issues in public interest legal work around the country and consequently a "hot" area of hiring in non-profit organizations and government agencies. Come learn about what is happening to veterans in N.C. and nationally and perhaps pick up some tips on doing this work. Get a glimpse of this work from a local government director, a direct services legal aid attorney, a state policy expert and the director of a large firm pro bono project as you learn about disability law, military discharge, expungement of criminal records and more. The panel includes: Ms. Lois Harvin-Ravin, Director, Durham County Veterans Services; Mr. Jim Wall, Legal Aid of NC; Mr. Daniel Bowes, NC Justice Center; and Mr. Tripp Greason, Womble Carlyle Sandridge and Rice, LLP. Sponsored by the Office of Public Interest Advising, the Public Interest & Pro Bono Office, the Veterans Disability Assistance Project, and the Government and Public Service Society.
