The UW Law School is honored and fortunate to have a number of veterans among its student body and staff.
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 to our veterans for their significant commitment to our national welfare and for the wisdom and experience they bring to our program.
