3 MCLE Credits in Areas of Professional Practice for experienced and newly-admitted attorneys.
New York has implemented a number of programs and laws geared toward serving its unique and diverse veterans. From Veteran’s Courts to Assistive Technology, this CLE will provide context for the various arenas in which Veteran specific programs and laws
have developed to provide a specific or added benefit for Veterans. This program is free of charge and Lunch will be provided. Presenters for this event are Art Cody, NY State Defenders Association, Benjamin Pomerance, NY State Division of Veterans' Affairs and Christy Asbee, Disability Rights NY.
We will be collecting donations for the Albany
Stratton VA Medical Center Voluntary Services Office, which serves Veterans in
need through the donations of a generous community. Donated items provide
comforts and necessities that cannot be provided through the use of taxpayer
dollars. VAVS offers clothing, toiletries, meals, transportation, and
recreational activities to Veterans receiving care at the facility. The
current needs of VAVS are new cold weather clothing, gift cards (Walmart,
Target, Price Chopper, Hannafords, Shop-Rite, ect.), and new quilts.
