Langdon & Emison was recognized last week as a primary sponsor of the Mizzou Veterans Clinic. Partner Bob Langdon and colleagues on the alumni committee who’ve been volunteering with the law clinic were recognized at the Tennessee football game at halftime for their service to the veterans and the Mizzou law school.
The clinic is one of the more impressive pro bono legal resources dedicated to America’s veterans, having served over 1,400 clients and filed 7 amicus briefs before the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of veterans’ issues. In all the law clinic has earned over $14 million in veterans’ benefits for its clients. Under the supervision of experienced attorneys, law students at the Mizzou Law Veterans Clinic help veterans – free of charge – with discharge upgrades and Department of Veterans Affairs disability compensation claims. In addition to directly representing veterans with their disability claims, the Clinic also participates in high level amicus brief writing, training and education for practicing attorneys, rural veteran outreach through Tigers for Troops, and more.
The law clinic survives in part due to the generosity of Mizzou alums and from those in the community that are passionate about supporting veterans. If you would like to donate to the clinic, the university has set up this giving page for online donations:
