Military Students 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 applying to graduating. Seattle University School of Law twice holds the distinction of being voted a military-friendly school.

- Connect with your classmates and fellow veterans through the Veterans Association.
- The University also provides a Veteran Navigator to provide additional support services to veteran students.
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, transition to government, or enter the private sector.
