The Veterans Legal Assistance Conference & Training

University of Baltimore, William H. Thumel Sr. Business Center
11 W. Mount Royal Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21201

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 conference will include 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 will include panels with updates on state benefits, issues for incarcerated veterans, federal legislation, veteran-focused estate planning, and more!

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.
