Latest Group Discussions & Documents

On August 10, 2017, consolidated briefs were filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit by Fellows in support of the College's efforts to seek justice for disabled veterans. The College, through the efforts of the Special Problems in the Administration of Justice (U.S.) Committee, has been working through many dedicated Fellows to help with the deprivation of due process for our veterans in the failure to adjudicate appeals of disability claims in a time that could ever be considered fair. The briefs lay out the legal theory but just as importantly the history of this problem and the real world consequences to our veterans.
