The Veterans Clinic is located in the University of Missouri’s School of Law. Under the supervision of experienced attorneys, law students help veterans, at no charge, with their claims in front of the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Tigers for Troops program was created by the Clinic to remedy unmet legal needs of rural veterans in Missouri. Under the program, the Clinic partners with Mizzou Extension to travel to rural parts of Missouri to reach veterans without access to veteran’s services.

The Veterans Clinic also assists veterans in receiving discharge upgrades, helps train attorneys to help veterans navigate the VA system, holds annual symposiums highlighting the stories of veterans and developments within veterans’ law, and contributes to amicus briefs and other advocacy projects in support of veterans.

Since the Clinic’s inception just seven years ago, it has secured over $10 million in benefits for veterans in Missouri and has helped more than 1,000 veterans.

This event is sponsored by Commerce Bank, Veterans United, and Shelter Insurance.
