Lecturer in Law Melissa Tyner Cited in Daily Bruin Article on UCLA Deal with United States Department of Veterans Affairs

February 9, 2016 – Lecturer in Law and director of the UCLA Veterans Benefits Legal Clinic, Melissa Tyner, was cited in a Daily Bruin article discussing UCLA’s new deal with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to improve medical, social and financial services.  

Melissa Tyner said the clinic will be relocated and expanded as part of the agreement, but no further details have been released. She added it is too early to tell how the expansion will affect the current clinic, but she thinks increased resources will result in increased access to legal services for homeless veterans.
