Boalt Veteran Assistance Project
The Boalt Veteran Assistance Project (BVAP) has launched efforts to expand veterans legal services in the East Bay. As part of its initial efforts, BVAP created a SLPS to pilot a needs assessment and resource evaluation project. SLPS members will volunteer their time at local veterans service and advocacy organizations in order to do community outreach and data collection. The findings from this project will in turn be used to help promote the creation of a full-fledged veterans legal clinic at Berkeley Law. Under attorney supervision from the East Bay Community Law Center, students will engage in an information and referral model only while doing community outreach. BVAP is seeking a small number of creative and dedicated students to help us with this pilot project in the spring semester, with the hopes of considerably expanding our efforts in the fall.
