Veterans Law Clinic (VLC)

Founded in 1997 and expanded significantly in 2006, the VLC in Wilmington, Delaware, is a Delaware Law pro bono clinical program.  It was the first of its kind in the country and it grew into the clinic of today, which has recovered more than $16 million in benefits owed to veterans. The Clinic has been honored with the Delaware Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Award for Community Service.

The Veterans Law Clinic provides free legal representation to primarily low-income and disabled veterans and their dependents in appealing adverse VA decisions. Our staff, students, and volunteer attorneys evaluate each potential case for merit, gather key evidence from the VA, the military, and doctors, and then provide effective representation to help our clients receive the benefits they deserve.  We represent clients with claims pending at the Regional Office, the Board of Veterans’ Appeals, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. 

In addition to VA claims, we also take discharge upgrade cases and prepare simple wills and other estate documents.  

If you are a student interested in participating in the clinic please see the Information for Students page for more details about internships.
