Spotlight on the Practising Law Institute

Posted by Chi Song on November 14, 2014

Veterans Day was this past Tuesday.  Are you an attorney whose unfamiliarity with veterans law is holding you back from participating in pro bono legal service projects geared towards services for veterans? If so, then the Practising Law Institute (PLI) can be a good resource for you.

The PLI, founded in 1933, is a non-profit, continuing legal education organization that provides seminars, treatises, websites and other resources for attorneys and other legal professionals.  The PLI’s available resources includes a free web seminar titled, “Advocating for Veterans: The Basics on VA Benefits, Discharge Upgrades and Veteran Cultural Competency (http://www.pli.edu/Content/Seminar/Advocating_for_Veterans_The_Basics_on_VA/_/N-4kZ1z12f57?fromsearch=false&ID=174212). This webinar may be able to assist you in better understanding veterans law.  In addition, the organizations highlighted in our earlier post about available pro bono legal service projects have training resources as well.  More information about the PLI is available at www.pli.edu.
