Veterans Services Programs
Veterans Legal Services Clinics (VLSC)
Our nation's veterans answered the call to serve; now CMBA members are answering the call to serve veterans.
Through the Veterans Legal Services Clinics, volunteer attorneys, law students, and paralegals will provide pro bono or low-cost services for local veterans. A team of attorneys from CMBA's Leadership Academy Class of 2020 started this initiative in May 2020.
All volunteers will be provided with:
A crisis contacts list to encourage social/community support that may allow veterans to have a supported experience
One page information sheets created by Sections of the CMBA which provide basic legal information regarding common legal issues
Speaker series of CLEs which will prepare volunteers to work with veterans, addressing topics such as PTSD, trauma, veterans benefits, etc.
Training to complete the VA accreditation program
Professional liability insurance coverage for clinic-related service
