Military Veterans Justice Project

We all owe an enormous debt to the young men and women in our armed forces. As they return to civilian life, it is fitting that that we show our gratitude for their sacrifice and service. The mission of the Military Veterans Justice Project is to provide scholarships to students admitted to the Law School who have served in the United States Armed Forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, or elsewhere, and to provide targeted legal services to veterans who would otherwise be underserved by the legal profession.

These goals are in keeping with the Law School's mission to promote social justice and to produce graduates who will be leaders of both the legal profession and the community it serves.

Scholarships

Veterans have the leadership qualities and devotion to professionalism that make for great lawyers. But with tuition costs continually rising, and with limited support in the G.I Bill for graduate studies, veterans are hard pressed to finance an advanced degree.  One full scholarship to the day division is $40,000. A full scholarship to the evening division is $25,000.  Even partial scholarships may make all the difference for a qualified Veteran.

How you can help:

  • Fund a scholarship
  • Fund the clinic
