Professor Backus Bringing more Pro Bono Opportunities to OU Law

For OU Law Professor Mary Sue Backus, this summer has meant cultivating more pro bono opportunities for students.  She has attended trainings for two separate pro bono programs, The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program and the Clemency Project 2014.

The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program provides veterans and other VA claimants with free attorney representation in appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. The claimants are veterans who have been previously denied by the VA’s Board of Veterans’ Appeals.
