About the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims

The U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims is a federal court with exclusive jurisdiction over final decisions by the Board of Veterans’ Appeals, an entity within the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The Court provides veterans an impartial judicial forum for review of administrative decisions by the Board of Veterans’ Appeals that are adverse to the veteran-appellant’s claim of entitlement to benefits for service-connected disabilities, survivor benefits, and other benefits including education payments and waiver of indebtedness.

Three of the Court’s seven judges will preside over oral arguments at the College of Law. The panel may include alumnus Alan G. Lance, Sr. ’73, who was nominated to the Court by President George W. Bush in 2004.
