The GVOP will allow both the Veterans Legal Clinic and the Georgia Legal Services Program to fully realize a remote clinic system, which will improve outreach efforts to veterans statewide. The events will eliminate barriers faced with purely in-person clinics, including the health and safety concerns brought to light by the coronavirus pandemic.
The law school is grateful to a group of Columbus-based supporters who have focused their efforts on ensuring that our nation’s military men and women receive the assistance they need. This group includes renowned trial attorney and alumnus James E. “Jim” Butler Jr., who has been a steadfast supporter of those who have served in the U.S. military. Butler made a lead gift to establish the law school’s Veterans Legal Clinic, which assists Georgia veterans with claims before the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. He also established the Butler Commitment, which guarantees financial aid to 100 percent of student veteran law school matriculants.
