U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims Visit

The United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims will hold oral argument at Dickinson Law on September 14, 2018. One of the few federal courts with nationwide jurisdiction, a three-judge panel will hold 60-minute oral arguments on a current case, Batcher v. O'Rourke (No. 16-0638). The specific issue presented in this case is whether and to what extent the terms of a separation agreement affect a spouse's entitlement to special apportionment of a veteran's VA disability compensation benefits under 38 C.F.R. § 3.451.

This special visit of the court offers an opportunity for students to learn about federal practice, administrative law, constitutional law, and veterans benefits. The judges and their law clerks will be available to meet with students and faculty. Students, faculty, staff, and community members are invited and encouraged to attend. Register to attend.
