Veteran Benefits and Resources

Welcome Active Duty Military and Veterans

Seattle University School of Law is committed to serving and educating military members and their families. Our knowledgeable staff is here to guide you through the process, from application to graduation. 

Student Experience

Professional Development and Career Services

Service members come to law school with prior work experience and specific career objectives in mind. Through the Center for Professional Development, veteran students get assistance in translating those skills into the legal profession. You may wish to continue your military service, the transition to government, or enter the private sector.

To learn more about Judge Advocate General recruiting, including the Air Force and Navy, go to On Campus Recruiting. Seattle U Law also participates in the Federal Honors Program.
