Brian Clauss, Director JMLS Veterans Clinic, speaks to ISBA Health Care Section Council

The Illinois State Bar Association Health Care Section Council welcomed Brian Clauss, Director of The John Marshall Law School Veterans Clinic at its council meeting on November 18. The Veterans Legal Support Center & Clinic provides free legal assistance when a veteran has been improperly denied benefits by the Veterans Benefits Administration.

Clauss shared how the clinic and its volunteers are successful in assisting veterans with disability claims. He also informed the Council about opportunities for lawyers who want to volunteer and get involved with the clinic. This VA benefit appeals clinic, one of the first of its kind in the U.S., is a nationally recognized pro bono program. In addition to helping veterans with their benefit appeals, the clinic also shares news and resources with veterans who may take advantage of a variety of benefits made available to them in local communities.
