Over the years, many veterans and military-connected students have joined our Law School after completing their military service, others are currently enrolled in classes while they continue to serve, and children, and spouses of current or former members of the military have become part of our rich community. We are grateful for veterans commitment to our national welfare and for the wisdom, skills and experience they bring to our program. 

We encourage our military-connected students to learn more about our community and to take advantage of the resources listed on this page.
