The students at the UCI Law Veterans Law Clinic lobbied to get a legal clinic for veterans on campus. They spent hundreds of hours lobbying and researching until they finally got approval. Since then, they have each worked through Veterans Legal Institute to assist over 90 indigent veteran clients. The students continue to assist growing the clinic by attending out of town conferences and lobbying for support from larger veteran organizations.
