Veterans Law Clinic (VLC)

Founded in 1997 and expanded significantly in 2006, the VLC in Wilmington, Delaware, is a Delaware Law pro bono clinical program.

VLC faculty, students, staff attorneys, and legal fellows honor and protect low-income and disabled veterans and their families who reside in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and surrounding areas. We offer free legal representation to veterans with meritorious VA claims that have been denied by a regional VA office.  We also engage in community outreach, providing wills and other estate documents to veterans, sharing best practices with law clinics around the country, and recruiting and training local attorneys who are willing to take on pro bono veterans’ cases.

The addition of two Equal Justice Works Americorps Legal Fellows, coupled with two part-time graduate student interns (Master of Social Work candidates) enables the VLC to provide holistic advocacy over a broad range of civil legal issues, including benefits, housing, expungements, discharge upgrades, and consumer law in addition to health and social services case management.
