Veterans

Albany Law School launched a military recruitment initiative in 2013 to better serve members of the armed forces who are seeking a law degree.

For years, the law school has participated in the federal Yellow Ribbon Program, offering reduced tuition for veterans.

Tsovaras '17 receieved a Purple Heart for his Afghanistan service.

Albany Law School also shows its commitment to veterans by providing free legal services via the student-run Veterans’ Rights Pro Bono Project.

Veterans receive advice and assistance in a variety of legal areas, including drafting and executing wills, powers of attorney, and health care proxies; personal bankruptcy matters; benefits; tax law; matrimonial and family law; landlord/tenant and property law; Social Security concerns; and lost or incorrect military documents.

Read about current student veterans and recent graduates, including a student who earned a Purple Heart.
