The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program provides free attorneys to veterans and their qualifying family members who have an appeal pending at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (Court). If an appellant has filed an appeal with the Court and has been unable to obtain his or her own attorney after 30 days, he or she can request assistance from The Veterans Consortium. The Veterans Consortium recruits and trains volunteer attorneys to help appellants, free of charge, with their appeals at the Court. The Veterans Consortium, in partnership with Duke Law School's Office of Public Interest and Pro Bono invites you to attend this training. The Duke Law Community is welcome to attend.

No CLE credit will be offered for this training. Reservations are required and granted on a first come basis. Please RSVP by Friday, Nov. 11. Confirmation and logistics will be sent on Monday, Nov. 14. Sponsored by the Office of Public Interest and Pro Bono.
