On July 22, 2014, Liam McGivern, staff attorney and Skadden Fellow at Legal Services of Greater Miami, Inc., was a speaker at a nationwide training on Military Discharge Upgrades. Along with other national experts on veteran’s advocacy issues, Mr. McGivern spoke on the process for proving that a veteran who received a less than an honorable discharge can have that designation upgraded by proving the discharge designation was improper or inequitable, requirements for being granted an upgrade. The well-received training was co-sponsored by Federal Bar Association, New York University School of Law, National Veteran Legal Services Program, New York County Lawyers’ Association, and the Queens Volunteer Lawyers Project Inc.
