In honor of Veteran’s Day on Friday, Nov. 11, and Veterans Awareness Week on Nov. 7-12, the Veterans Advocacy Law Organization (VALOR) is sponsoring a number of events at the law school including a Marine Corps birthday cake cutting ceremony, says VALOR President Chris Salemme (JD ’17), 1st Lieutenant, U.S. Army.
A free legal workshop VALOR had planned to host on Saturday, Nov. 12, in the Law Commons for all veterans and current service members has been postponed until the spring semester.
“Our goal in hosting this workshop is to inform veterans of the legal protections available to them because it is impossible to exercise these rights and take advantage of the opportunities without knowing that they exist,” Salemme says. “I strongly encourage veterans, their families, and active service members to attend and to bring any questions they may have for our attorney-presenters.”
