Committees: Military & Veterans’ Affairs

The Military & Veterans’ Affairs Committee shall explore and identify legal issues and needs of service members (active duty, Guard or Reserve) living in Indiana or stationed and deployed outside of Indiana, and assist service members and veterans with such needs; continue the Lawyers for Soldiers Program, which provides pro bono legal assistance to service members, veterans and their families; and develop a network of ISBA members (judges, JAGs and lawyers). 


The Indiana State Bar Association’s Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee and the Elder Law Section will present a three-hour CLE that will qualify for VA accreditation – this CLE will be presented as part of the ISBA’s Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, September 28-30.  This CLE will be 1:45-4:45pm on Friday, September 30.

To represent veterans before the Department of Veterans Affairs, you must be accredited by the VA. 

Accreditation is a two-step process: (1) Complete VA Form 21a, attaching any necessary documents to the form when you submit it.  (2) complete 3 hours of qualifying CLE.

To complete the process, you must complete the application and receive accreditation prior to taking the accreditation CLE.  This application process could take several months, so we recommend you start the process now:
