Representing Washington Veterans: Basic Legal and Cultural Concepts


The Northwest Justice Project (NJP) is Washington State’s largest provider of civil legal services to low-income Washington residents. The NJP with its AmeriCorps Legal Fellow wrote this guide to introduce attorneys to the basic concepts of culture and law that underpin effective assistance of veterans. While it is written in the context of Washington State, its introduction to military culture and veterans benefits is applicable nationally.
