Professor Blair Thompson presented a CLE session on Lawline providing a general overview of veterans’ disability benefits law before the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  The program reviews the procedures for appealing a VA disability denial, covers the evidence veterans advocates need to provide in order to obtain disability benefits for their clients, the legal standards the VA uses to evaluate the evidence, and addresses best practices for an attorney representing veterans before VA.

In the clip below, Professor Thompson explains the difference between the Veterans Health Administration and the Veterans Benefits Administration.
