alex scherr meeting with clinic client

The Veterans Legal Clinic has helped approximately 800 veterans and their family members claim more than $3 million in additional benefits during its first five years of operation. The clinic – which primarily assists former Georgia military members with claims before the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs – was established with a lead gift from renowned trial attorney and 1977 law school alumnus James E. "Jim" Butler Jr., who also supports the school's Butler Commitment that guarantees financial aid to 100% of student veteran law school matriculants.
