Yellow Ribbon Program's Tuition Assistance

The Post 9/11 GI Bill may cover tuition up to the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition. Along with that discount, Albany Law School participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, directly matching contributions from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. The V.A. contributes up to $4,375 per student per year toward the tuition difference; Albany Law then provides an additional $4,375 match for each student each semester.

Dean Andrews to Lead Statewide Veterans Effort

This year Dean Andrews will co-chair a new partnership among the 15 New York law schools, with the Govenor's Office and the New York State Division of Vetrans' Affairs, to lead an innovative initiative to assess how New York state's 15 law schools can best provide legal assistance to the veterans of New York. As the initiative moves forward updates will be provided.

Students Helping Veterans

Through partnerships with New York-based veteran groups, students help dozens of veteran clients every year in the Albany Law School Tax and Transactions Law Clinic.

Albany Law School is forming the Student Alumni Veterans Association to build a network for Albany Law veterans and their immediate families. Albany Law will be contacting alumni veterans shortly with details about the group, which will be led by James Faucher '16 and Joshua Bennett '14. If interested in joining the group, email the alumni office at alumni@albanylaw.edu.
