Please click the "Read more" button below for the whole message. --- The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program was created in 1992 with a dual mission:  1) to provide assistance to unrepresented veterans or their family members who have filed appeals at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (Court), and 2) to recruit and train attorneys in the field of veterans' law.  For additional information about the Consortium, please visit www.vetsprobono.org.

The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono program is seeking volunteer help to assist with determining the final outcomes of cases for its veteran clients.  The law student will contact volunteer attorneys and clients who received a remand from the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims in 2010 or 2011 (approximately 375 cases).  The law student will collect information on the outcome of a case and, if it is a positive outcome, also collect the subjective information about the difference the settlement made in the veteran's life.  In addition, the law student will prepare statistics reporting to the success rate of the cases, the number that remain unresolved or partially unresolved, and other data that may prove useful to the Program.  It is estimated that this project will require approximately 200 hours.

Individuals interested in participating in this project should send their resume and statement of interest to Camille Soleil, Executive Director, at Camille.Soleil@vetsprobono.org.
