New NCBA Section Could Mean New Business For You

pointingA new NC Bar Association practice section is good news for military personnel and their families – and it could mean new business opportunities for you.

The NCBA has just announced the formation of its Military & Veterans Law Section. Learn more or join by clicking here.

The section will provide a forum for NCBA members with a special interest in military law or veteran-focused legal services. It will also serve as a coordinating body for NCBA activities and initiatives impacting military and veterans.

Among the goals of the section:

  • Offer specialized CLE training for lawyers.
  • Provide connections between lawyers and veterans in need of legal assistance.
  • Provide a forum to keep current with veteran-focused legal issues and military law.
  • Promote initiatives and legislation supporting our military and veterans.
  • Serve as a liaison with public entities on veteran-related services and activities.

The section is an outgrowth of the NCBA’s Military & Veterans Affairs Committee, which has been active in military and veteran affairs for some time. Annual dues will be $40.

The new section is subject to final approval by the NCBA Board of Governors. So if you practice in this area or have a passion for the military, join now to show your interest.
