Over the years, many veterans have joined our Law School after completing their military service, and others are currently enrolled in classes while they continue to serve. We are grateful for their commitment to our national welfare and for the wisdom and experience they bring to our program. We encourage our veterans and service members to learn more about our community and to take advantage of the resources listed on this page.
