Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law alumna Dallis Warshaw (JD ’14) recently co-authored an article in the Orange County Register titled “Rethinking the military’s Feres doctrine.” The article details the negative effects of the Feres Doctrine, under which service members are banned from filing suit for harm incurred while on duty.
Warshaw is a policy analyst for the Veterans Legal Institute, a public interest law firm that provides free legal services to low-income veterans and military members. The Veterans Legal Institute was co-founded by Chapman Law alumna Antoinette Balta (JD ’06, LL.M. ’11) and Dwight Stirling, who joined Warshaw in authoring the Orange County Register article.
Prior to joining the Veterans Legal Institute, Warshaw served as a legal intern for the United States Department of Health and Human Services and as a judicial intern for the United States Bankruptcy Court. As a student, she competed on Fowler School of Law’s Moot Court Competition Board; served as managing editor of the Chapman Law Review; participated in the Entertainment Law Clinic; and received three CALI Awards.
