In November of 2015, the Health Law Section established the Military & Veterans Health Law Interest Group to address the unique health law issues pertaining to active military and veterans. Since its inception, the task force has collaborated with the ABA’s Military Pro Bono Center and the ABA Veterans' Claims Assistance Network (VCAN) to provide legal assistance in eight areas of Civil Law. The Military & Veterans Health Law Interest Group further serves as a resource to Law School Veterans Clinics by providing a mechanism for sharing best practices, recent trends, proposed and new regulations and agency mandates, documents, policies, protocols and forms, implementation of laws and regulations, and content expertise.
