Too often, our conversations concerning legal services for Veterans do not get past the perfunctory statement of 'Thank you for your service.'
This conference brings together some of the nation’s leading Veterans’ advocates to discuss issues that are too often ignored in our conversations about Veterans and their families, including:
And much, much more.
CLE: Attorneys who attend may receive 5.0 NYS CLE credits in the area of Professional Practice (transitional or non-transitional credit) and 1.5 NYS CLE credits in the area of Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias (non-transitional only) for a total of 6.5 credits for experienced attorneys, and 5.0 NYS CLE credits for newly admitted attorneys.
Co-sponsored by the New York State Division of Veterans' Services , the New York State Division of Human Rights, and the University at Buffalo School of Law, this conference offers valuable insights, strategies, connections, and inspirations for lawyers and non-lawyers alike, allowing us all to better serve the people who served our nation.
