Volunteers Needed for Military Discharge Upgrade Clinic in Lebanon - July 25
- Pennsylvania Bar Association Pro Bono Office
The Pennsylvania Bar Association Pro Bono Office, working with the Veterans Consortium, will be joining the Lebanon VA for a Discharge Upgrade Clinic on Thursday, July 25, 2019 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Lebanon VA Medical Center, 1700 S. Lincoln Ave., Building 37, Lebanon, PA 17042.
Volunteers are needed to staff the clinic to advise and assist veterans interested in seeking a Military Discharge Upgrade. Each participating attorney will get two free CLE credits, one substantive and one ethics, paid for through contributions to the Pro Bono Office.
The first hour is earned by watching the video (link below) and reviewing the manual and corresponding materials which must be done prior to the 25th. Another one hour training will be held the morning of the 25th from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM. Forms providing for the CLE credit will be completed on the 25th--credit will only be given to those who volunteer for the training.

The PBA Pro Bono office is working with the Veterans Consortium which has hosted earlier clinics in Butler last October and Pittsburgh in May, with the hope that more clinics will be scheduled in the future as there is a need for this service.
