The killing of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens in 2012 ignited a political firestorm about how well the U.S. protects its personnel, from diplomats to soldiers, serving in dangerous environments abroad.

At Golden Gate University’s law school, it was the genesis of a different movement: supporting veterans who had already completed their military service. The effort begun by Dean Rachel Van Cleave led to the creation of the Veterans Legal Advocacy Center, which brings together a variety of programs to assist veterans pursuing careers in the law and now includes a clinic in which students help veterans obtain health benefits they’re unable to get on their own.

The impetus for Van Cleave came shortly after she became interim dean at Golden Gate Law, when she was asked to speak at a memorial for Stevens, the ambassador to Libya killed in attacks on U.S. sites in Benghazi. After the vigil at the University of California-Hastings, where Van Cleave and Stephens had attended law school and become friends, she heard two students, both veterans, talking about how others at the school didn’t seem to understand them. She offered to help, though at the time she wasn’t sure how she could.
