Thank you to all attendees, organizers, and speakers for another inspiring conference!

The Veterans Legal Assistance Conference & Training

Featuring Keynote Address by:
Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Anthony Woods

Designed for lawyers, law students, veterans, policymakers and other service professionals, this annual conference provides a forum for discussion of critical legal issues facing our veterans.

The 2023 conference featured a training for lawyers interested in representing veterans in claims for service-connected disability benefits, as well as training for non-attorney veterans interested in serving as mentors for the Baltimore City Veterans Treatment Docket.  Other sessions reviewed the PACT Act, Camp Lejune claims, and presumptive claims.

A recording of the Veterans Benefits 101 training is available for lawyers who agree to accept one pro bono case from Homeless Persons Representation Project in Maryland within 1 year. Staff of nonprofit legal services providers may attend without a commitment, but must register with their .org email address.
