Welcome to the Veterans Practice Area

The Veterans Practice Group aims to empower Florida's attorneys by assisting with training and providing an up-to-date library of resources of all kinds. We also work to cultivate and support Florida's community of advocates by providing a state-wide network to share information.

This practice area is password restricted. Membership and full access is currently available to all Florida legal services and legal aid advocates working with veterans. Others are admitted by express permission of the practice area leader. Click here to join the Veterans Practice Area. Please note that you must join the email groups (listservs), separately, so please click here to do so.

This practice group is a partnership with the Florida Justice Technology Center.
