Please join the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims in Ames Courtroom, where a three-judge panel of the Court will convene to hear oral arguments in the pending case, Ausmer v. Shinseki. The case presents several novel questions related to the appellate rights of disabled combat veterans. This is the first time that this Court will convene on our campus. Harvard’s own Veterans Legal Clinic, launched by Clinical Professor Dan Nagin, represents the appellant in the case, and two Clinic students will argue the case to the Court on his behalf. The case highlights not only the legal issues veterans face when they seek VA benefits, but the practical lawyering and Pro Bono opportunities available to our students.
