Project Salute Helps Veterans
Project Salute, a collaboration between the Nevada Supreme Court Access to Justice Commission, the Young Lawyers Section of the State Bar of Nevada and Nevada Legal services, is coming to Nevada. Project Salute is the ABA Young Lawyers Division project of the year and assists veterans in getting their VA benefits by pairing them with a volunteer attorney.
Attorneys who wish to volunteer with project salute must be VA certified prior to the kick-off event, which takes places on November 12, 2012 in both Reno and Las Vegas.
Once certified, volunteer attorneys have 12 months to take a mandatory three hour CLE; Nevada will offer this CLE free of charge in October, and attorneys who are interested in volunteering are encouraged to begin the certification process now as certification can take up to 90 days.
