Veterans Law Webinar

 Join us on Tuesday, July 7th at 7:00 p.m. EDT
for a special presentation for Phi Alpha Delta members.

Jenny J. Tang will offer information regarding the different areas of practice in the field of veterans law (e.g., federal clerkships, administrative law practice, appellate litigation, pro bono practice), including tips on how to enter this field.  She will provide insights on this growing and developing niche field of law, including how surprisingly often a case can have a lasting impact on the lives of thousands of veterans and on the body of law itself.  Jenny will also offer a shallow dive into different types of veterans benefits issues and their controlling legal authorities, and she will provide practitioner resources for those just starting out.
