Veterans Disability Appeals Field Clinic

Students in the Veterans Disability Appeals Field Clinic will do their field work in the offices of Chisholm, Chisholm & Kilpatrick, one of the nation’s leading veterans disability law firms in the country, located in downtown Providence. Practicing pursuant to a student practice rule, students will be assigned to represent military veterans whose applications for disability benefits have been denied, pursuing their administrative appeals in the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC). Students will perform record reviews, identify relevant evidence, draft legal memoranda in preparation for pre-briefing conferences with the Veteran’s Administration Office of General Counsel and Central Legal Services for the CAVC, participate in pre-briefing conferences to discuss the appeal and potentially negotiate a resolution of the appeal, participate in a mock argument addressing legal issues before the CAVC and, when appropriate, argue an appeal before the CAVC. All of the casework will be supervised by seasoned veterans disability attorneys at the firm.
