Students at the University of Missouri School of Law Veterans Clinic help veterans and their families secure disability benefits. Student work is done at the Regional Office and the Board of Veterans’ Appeals levels, as well as before the Court of Appeals for Veterans’ Claims. Students are supervised by an experienced attorney at each step and have the opportunity to work in a law firm atmosphere within the law school serving real client needs. 
Under this program, the Clinic is partnering with the University of Missouri Extension to have students and supervising attorneys visit extension offices throughout the State to educate veterans about available resources, as well as to assist them with disability claims and appeals and discharge upgrades. Clinic personnel will also train attorneys on veterans’ law to increase the number of attorneys qualified to help veterans in Missouri’s rural areas.
