VLC faculty, students, staff attorneys, and legal fellows honor and protect low-income and disabled veterans and their families who reside in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and surrounding areas. We offer free legal representation to veterans with meritorious VA claims that have been denied by a regional VA office. We also engage in community outreach, providing wills and other estate documents to veterans, sharing best practices with law clinics around the country, and recruiting and training local attorneys who are willing to take on pro bono veterans’ cases.
The clinic started as a Veterans Assistance Program in 1997. It was the first of its kind in the country and it grew into the clinic of today, which has recovered more than $9 million in benefits owed to veterans. It has also been honored with the Delaware Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Award for Community Service.
If you are a student interested in participating in the clinic please see the Information for Students page and download the Delaware Student Clinic Application Form.
