The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), together with the American Bar Association, has signed a Memorandum of Agreement aimed at improving veterans' access to free legal services. VA is encouraging VA Medical Centers and other VA facilities to engage with their local communities to establish legal clinics and Medical Legal Partnerships to address Veterans' legal needs. Currently, VA hosts at least 165 free legal clinics in its VA Medical Centers, Community Based Outpatient Clinics and Vet Centers across the country.
