Law school’s Veterans Legal Clinic improves lives

Monday, November 11, 2019

Improving the lives of veterans living in the Peach State is the goal of the University of Georgia School of Law’s Veterans Legal Clinic. The impact of this 18-month-old clinic is real and growing. Early this year, the clinic had an active caseload representing around 25 veterans at one time. Since April, the clinic has secured over $230,000 in additional financial relief for former members of our country’s military. By all accounts, this impact will grow exponentially due to the Veterans Legal Clinic adding a full-time attorney in August to help clinic Director Alexander Scherr manage cases and supervise students.
