The Veterans Law Center (VLC) is a free walk-in legal clinic that serves low-income veterans and their families. Volunteer attorneys, along with paralegals and law students, provide brief legal advice, information and referrals on a variety of civil legal matters. Additionally, staff from the Dane County Veterans Service Office provides information about military benefits and other resources available to veterans.

The University of Wisconsin Law School Pro Bono Program, in collaboration with the Dane County Bar Association, the Dane County Veterans Service Office, and Porchlight, Inc. developed the Veterans Law Center in 2012. Major funding is provided by the State Bar of Wisconsin and Habush, Habush & Rottier.

  • Assist with the completion of court forms
  • Provide referrals to alternative legal resources when appropriate
