This program is for attorneys who are interested in assisting Veterans with their claims and appeals for Veterans’ benefits. The Veterans Administration (VA) requires that any attorney assisting a Veteran with VA benefits obtain and maintain VA Accreditation. Both VA accredited attorneys and attorneys who are not yet accredited to practice at the VA but are interested in becoming accredited or learning more about Veterans’ Law are encouraged to attend. 

This program will provide an overview of the VA system and benefits, will discuss how to navigate the VA process, how and when to file an appeal, how to meet the requisite evidentiary standards for the specific benefit, how procedure may be changing or may have recently changed, and how this affects the practice. This program complies with the CLE requirements for the initial year accreditation set forth under 38 C.F.R. § 14.629 and for the ongoing biannual recertification for VA accredited attorneys.

Sponsored by the Committee on Veterans, the Business Law Section, the Corporate Counsel Section and the Committee on Continuing Legal Education of the New York State Bar Association and by the Westchester County Bar Association and USI Affinity.
