University of Arizona James E Rogers College of Law – Veterans Advocacy Law Clinic – Staff Attorney

30 May 2024 7:47 PM | Mike Murphy (Administrator)

The Veterans Advocacy Law Clinic (VALC) at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law seeks applicants for the position of Staff Attorney. The VALC provides pro bono legal services to U.S. military veterans and service members by representing them in veterans treatment courts, on VA disability benefits compensation cases, and on discharge upgrade and correction of military records cases. The Clinic also helps veterans and their family members through its robust Intake and Referral Program and by engaging in special projects and community outreach. Many of the veterans and service members it assists have physical and mental health challenges and/or substance use issues, some of which were caused directly or indirectly by their military service. Thus, much of the Clinic's work relates to addressing the intersection of these issues and legal needs. The VALC is a semester long, for-credit law clinic in which law students, under the supervision of clinic faculty, are the primary attorneys. The Clinic also works with a University of Arizona undergraduate student who is placed in the Clinic as an intern, for credit.

The Staff Attorney’s primary role will be supervising students in veterans treatment court and on benefits, discharge upgrade, and correction of military records cases and, relatedly, assisting in case management. During the summer, the Staff Attorney will assist in representing clients in veterans treatment courts, with or without students. The Staff Attorney may also assist in the supervision of the undergraduate student, who typically acts as the Intake and Referral Program Coordinator. The Staff Attorney may also assist in special projects, such as an amicus brief or pop-up legal clinics at the VA, and engage in community outreach.
