Overview

On November 18, 1988, the Veterans' Judicial Review Act was signed into law, which established The United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC).

This program, taught by veteran and attorney Tom Kniffen, will review the Rules of Practice and Procedure and provide tips for effective practice before the CAVC.
