Please join ABA President and Baker Donelson shareholder Linda Klein for the "Effectively Representing the Veteran Client: Legal and Cultural Basics" webinar as part of the ABA Free CLE Series on Monday, August 15, from 12:00 - 1:35 p.m. CDT.

Providing effective representation to veterans, whether in civil or criminal matters, presents a unique set of concerns for attorneys, particularly those who have not served themselves. Most critical is an understanding of familiarity substantive and cultural fundamentals, particularly when representation involves navigating the complex web of benefits intended to help low-income and justice-involved veterans. This webinar will provide an analytic framework to understand:

  • who is a "veteran" under the law;
  • what rights and benefits attach to that status;
  • key issue identification; and
  • cultural practices for attorneys serving veterans in a system where goodwill has not always yielded good outcomes.
