Veterans Clinic

Michigan Law Veterans Legal Clinic Opens

In November, Michigan Law celebrated the opening of the Veterans Legal Clinic, which offers veterans and, in some cases, their immediate families, legal help in matters such as family law, eviction, consumer problems, foreclosure, and employment cases. 

The clinic also assists veterans with service-related matters, such as disability benefits and discharge status challenges. Under the supervision of faculty, 2L and 3L students represent veterans who primarily live in southeastern Michigan. 

A seed gift from the Bob Woodruff Foundation and a lead gift from Susan and Tom Washing, ’66, as well as gifts from other individuals, foundations, and firms, helped it to become the Law School’s 18th clinic.
