UofSC School of Law - Veterans Legal Clinic
The University of South Carolina School of Law Veterans Legal Clinic
is a year-round clinic that serves the legal needs of indigent veterans and their families, allowing them to continue making a positive impact on their communities. Legal assistance is available to veterans facing issues on credit and related financial matters, housing issues, government benefits, and family law issues.
Recently, the clinic had its first hearing in court. "It was a veteran who had fallen behind on child support because of being terminated without cause. The students took the bull by the reigns and convinced the Court to suspend enforcement of the order for 60 days to allow us to get the motion for modification filed and to have a hearing on that. It was a great win for the client, even though there is a lot more work to do.
Today was a good day for the client, his children, and the students that argued in front of the Court. Thank you for all you do for us." - Clyde "Bennett" Gore, Jr., Clinical Instructor
