In addition to advocating for veterans with their VA claims and discharge upgrades, the Veterans Clinic also participates in other forms of advocacy, including amicus briefs and scholarly articles.

Amicus briefs are “friend of the court” briefs that allow a third party to file briefs in court to advocate legal and policy positions. The Veterans Clinic has been involved in major amicus brief efforts that have changed the landscape of veterans benefits law. See some of the briefs we have been a part of below:

Francway, Jr. v. Wilkie

Gray v. Wilkie

Mathis v. McDonald

Monk v. Shulkin

National Organization of Veterans Advocates, Inc. v. Secretary of Veterans Affairs

Procopio, Jr. v. Wilkie
