The U.S. military is at the center of some of the most important social justice issues of our time: sexual assault, racism, and discrimination against LGBTQ individuals. In the Veterans Law Practicum and Seminar (VLP), students will learn about the impact of these and other issues on affected servicemembers and veterans, as well as about legal remedies. More information about VLP is available here: https://www.law.berkeley.edu/experiential/veterans-law-practicum/.
In Spring 2023, the Advanced Seminar will support Advanced VLP students' continued policy advocacy efforts on behalf of veterans deported consequent to criminal convictions that often stem from service-connected mental health conditions. According to best estimates, hundreds of veterans have been deported to Mexico alone, with many others in Jamaica, various countries in Africa, and elsewhere across the globe.
Enrollment in the Spring 2023 Advanced Veterans Law Seminar is limited to students who participated in the Veterans Law Seminar and Practicum (intro or advanced) in Fall 2022.
*All students enrolled in this course must also enroll in the co-requisite course Advanced Veterans Law Practicum.
