Veterans Rights Project
Welcome to Our Veterans Rights Project!
The clinic was selected as a host site for two Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Legal Fellows. The Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Legal Fellowship program was created to address the gaps in the legal aid community through pro bono management and direct representation. Health Rights Clinic Fellows are dedicated to providing legal services to the homeless and disabled veteran population of South Florida. The Fellows handle a wide range of cases, but their primary focus is on ensuring that our veterans are receiving the health care and public benefits they are entitled to.
The program provides an opportunity for our clinical students to work alongside the Fellows in a joint effort to assist the underserved veteran population. This collaboration creates a unique and innovative way to make a lasting impact on the South Florida veteran community while also helping to educate the next generation of lawyers.
The Veterans Rights Project Canefunder has now begun! We appreciate your participation!
