The U.S. military is a gateway to tackling pressing social justice issues, including sexual assault, racism, and discrimination against LGBTQ+ individuals. In the Veterans Law Practicum and Seminar (VLP), students learn about these systemic injustices and are armed with the substantive knowledge and lawyering skills necessary to vindicate affected veterans’ rights.

The anticipated focus of Fall 2024 VLP is advancement of Native American veterans' rights. Projects will likely include: (1) supporting efforts to expand the availability of Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts (tribal diversionary courts) for Native veterans facing criminal charges stemming from service traumas, and (2) policy research aimed at expanding remedies for Native veterans unlawfully kicked out of the military due to discrimination.

Enrollment in the Fall 2024 Advanced Veterans Law Practicum is limited to students who have previously participated in the Veterans Law Seminar and Practicum. The Advanced Practicum is devoted to project work and students may enroll for either 1 or 2 units (in proportion to time spent on project work). Students should contact the instructor for enrollment procedures: rose-carmen-goldberg@berkeley.edu.

*All students enrolled in this course must also enroll in the co-requisite course Advanced Veterans Law Seminar.

Students interested in learning more about the Veterans Law Practicum and Seminar can contact Prof. Rose Carmen Goldberg (rose-carmen-goldberg@berkeley.edu).
