Veterans Assistance Project ABA Video

Watch the Veterans Assistance Project in the ABA’s 2017 Annual Meeting Video

by CBJC Staff October 11, 2017

At the American Bar Association Annual Meeting in August 2017, veterans legal services organizations from across the country were showcased on a video wall, projected in a high-volume area. The Veterans Legal Services Recognition presentation includes brief yet compelling clips from over fifteen pro bono legal services providers for veterans. In CBJC’s Veterans Assistance Project’s (VAP) spotlight, Project Director Kent Eiler provides an overview of VAP’s pro bono model and presents the story of a Vietnam War veteran who received life-changing assistance through VAP’s pro bono attorneys. Watch VAP’s clip at 15:04 in the full video on the ABA website.
