Request a Research Appointment

Need more help? Reference librarians are available to meet with students in one-on-one sessions (or in small groups) to discuss research strategies, recommend relevant resources or review specific topics of legal research. 

Contact with the subject you're researching and when you would like to meet. A librarian will get back to you to set up an appointment. You can also schedule an appointment on the library homepage by clicking "Schedule an Online Research Appointment." We ask that you request your appointment at least 2 days in advance, but remember that you can always stop by the reference desk for immediate help with a quick research question.



UIC Law Library Libguides were created to assist patrons and researchers. These research guides were not intended to provide legal advice, nor should the included information be relied on for legal purposes.  

Overview: Veterans Benefits

Veterans' Benefits are diverse, and are found in different areas of the law.  Most benefits are protective in nature.  Many provide compensation for service, like education benefits.  Additionally, the Department of Veterans Affairs administers many of the veterans' benefits programs that exist.  This overview will highlight several major benefits, focusing on Education, Health care, Disability and Compensation Benefits, Death and Indemnity Benefits, and Employment benefits.  (The focus will be on Federal and Illinois Veterans' benefits).  For a more complete listing of veterans see the Federal Benefits for Veterans, Dependants & Survivors or consult the Secondary Sources page.
