Meghan Brooks is joining the New York Legal Assistance Group to build a class action and strategic litigation practice serving veterans.

Following recent procedural developments at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, Meghan will work to expand the availability and utility of the class action mechanism in the veterans’ law context. She plans to target barriers that veterans face to benefits and housing access, and to civilian workforce participation in the greater New York City area. Meghan graduated from Yale Law School in 2019, where she was a member of the Veterans Legal Services Clinic and a co-Editor-in-Chief of the Yale Journal of Law & Feminism.
