Robert W. Entenmann Veterans Law Clinic
Professor Samantha S. Kubek, Attorney-in-Charge
Maximum Enrollment: 8 Students
Students in the Robert W. Entenmann Veterans Law Clinic help veterans obtain disability (and thus, often, health care) benefits and apply for discharge upgrades.
More particularly, students may:
- help veterans submit disability claims to the Department of Veterans Affairs,
- work on appeals of denied claims, and
- help veterans obtain increases in disability ratings, for cases in which increases are justified by a veteran’s service record and health status.
Students may also may help veterans upgrade other-than-honorable discharges from the military so that these veterans become eligible for disability and health care benefits.
Working alongside physicians, other clinicians and experienced attorneys, students help veterans with service-connected disabilities establish that their disabling conditions are service-connected.
