Here’s more great news about a recent graduate, who was instrumental in the Veterans Benefits Clinic. Kevin Barrett, Class of 2013, received the Sullivan Award during Commencement on May 11, 2013. The Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award committee considers “only characteristics of heart, mind and helpfulness to others” in awarding the prize. Barrett has exemplified this ideal as a citizen-lawyer at William & Mary Law School. He is a first lieutenant in the Marine Corps and worked tirelessly in the Veterans Benefits Clinic full-time each summer and as a student in the clinic for two semesters.
Additionally, the Veterans Clinic has received notice from Virginia Senator Mark Warner, who sees our clinic as a potential national model to reduce the backlogged cases. Click here to read that full article.
