Clients meeting with Clinic students about their case

The Veterans Legal Clinic’s primary focus isĀ Discharge Upgrades. The Clinic can assist veterans who were discharged under less-than-honorable conditions request upgrades from Discharge Review Boards or Boards for the Correction of Military Records.

To further this goal, the Veterans Legal Clinic has chosen not to focus on VA Benefits claims at this time. There are several other organizations through North Carolina, including other law school legal clinics, that provide legal services for VA Benefits claims.

Likewise, the Veterans Legal Clinic also does not provide legal assistance for family law or criminal law issues. To learn more about additional legal resources in North Carolina, please see the Resources page.
