Seminar Description:

This program will discuss the legal challenges and ethical responsibilities lawyers face in representing veterans and how the continuing trauma veterans experience affects the lawyer’s ethical responsibilities of diligence and client communication.  In addition the program will discuss the legal difficulties veterans face when they are discharged under less than honorable circumstances for behavior that is characteristic of some conditions commonly suffered by military veterans, how to collect relevant records, recognize trauma symptoms, and trauma interviewing.  Following the presentation of the movie, a panel of experts will discuss the legal issues portrayed in the movie, the needs of military veterans, the obstacles confronting veterans who attempt to access treatment, and how lawyers can help meet those needs and overcome the barriers to help.

Movie Synopsis:

Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore star in Rob Reiner's unanimously acclaimed drama about the dangerous difference between following orders and following one's conscience. Cruise stars as a brash Navy lawyer who's teamed with a gung-ho litigator (Moore) in a politically explosive murder case. Charged with defending two Marines accused of killing a fellow soldier, they are confronted with complex issues of loyalty and honor, including its most sacred code and its most formidable warrior (Nicholson). Superbly directed with a trio of powerhouse performances and an outstanding supporting cast including Kevin Pollak, Kiefer Sutherland and Kevin Bacon.
