Resources for Veteran Students in Tampa Bay

Posted by Laura Zuppo on Apr 21, 2016 7:00:00 AM

At Stetson University College of Law, we don’t just welcome veterans. We go out of our way to make sure veterans are supported at every step of their studies and career.

Designated a Military Friendly School by Victory Media, Stetson Law is home to the Veterans Law Institute. With a mission to offer legal services to the military families, active military members and veterans in the Tampa Bay Area, the Veterans Law Institute offers legal help with VA disability benefits and legal help to military and veterans. What makes the Veterans Law Institute unique is the services for not just current students, but prospective students.


We understand that choosing the right law school is a major decision that often impacts the whole family. It’s important to get to know the Tampa Bay area as you get to know Stetson Law. As you research the area and what it has to offer to your unique needs and aspirations, keep these local resources in mind.
