Legal Clinic - Mason Veterans and Servicemembers Legal Clinic

MVETS was founded in 2004 in response to 9/11 and was the first law school clinic of its kind in the United States. M-VETS enables students to assist active-duty members of the armed forces, their families, and veterans in a wide variety of civil and administrative, litigation and non-litigation matters, including consumer-protection, landlord-tenant, family law, contracts, and military and veterans law and entitlement matters. Students are supervised by law school instructors or private practitioners with subject matter expertise, attend 2 hours of weekly classroom instruction, perform 2 office hours each week, and conduct an additional 10-15 hours per week of out-of-class casework. Students registered for the clinic will receive four (4) total graded credits for this course, two (2) of which are “in-class” credits and two (2) of which are “out-of-class.”
