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.
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.
