The Boston Bar Association is proud to offer this series of specialized programs to those members of the legal community who have interest in providing legal assistance to veterans, members of the military, and their families. Attend as many or as few programs as your schedule will allow.

This panel will provide an introduction to the complex web of benefits and services available to veterans, their families, and survivors.  Topics to be covered include VA service-connected disability benefits, VA pension, VA survivor's benefits, VA healthcare, other VA-administered benefit programs, and Massachusetts Veterans' Services Benefits.  The interplay between VA benefits and Social Security benefits will be addressed, as will the ways that military discharge character of service can impact access to veterans' benefits and services.  The panel will also discuss advocacy strategies for representing clients before agencies and in court. 

*Please note that all course materials for this series will be electronic only and sent via email to all registrants prior to the session. This program provides CLE Credit only.  This program does not qualify participants to practice before the Board of Veterans' Appeals or other agency requiring attorney accreditation.
