Introducing LEAP: LACBA’s Entrepreneurial Assistance Program for Veterans
LACBA’s Veterans Legal Services Project announces an exciting new expansion to its services for veterans. Through LEAP, we will offer legal education and legal assistance to veteran entrepreneurs to aid with small business development.
The Veterans Project is teaming up with Syracuse’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families and Orrick to present a series of video workshops centered on common legal questions that arise in small business development. Click here to watch the first video in the series.
In 2020, LEAP will accept eligible graduates and alumni of Syracuse’s National Entrepreneurship Programs for Veterans, EBV (Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans) and V-Wise (Veteran Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship) to assist disabled veterans and women veterans with navigating the legal needs of their businesses.

Since 2011, the Veterans Legal Services Project has helped resolve and refer hundreds of matters on behalf of the men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces.
The Project's current initiative is a collaboration with U.S. VETS and Los Angeles County to offer pro bono legal services at Patriotic Hall in downtown Los Angeles.
LACBA's Veterans Legal Services Project works to identify and address opportunities to assist veterans, active military personnel and reservists with their legal needs.
The program targets veterans who are unemployed and at risk of homelessness by offering legal services, clinics, and self-help workshops in the areas of:
Clearing Outstanding Tickets and Warrants
Reinstating California Driver Licenses
Expungements: Clearing Criminal Record for Employment
