“UC Hastings College of the Law is proud to welcome veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces to our campus in the heart of San Francisco. Those of you who have shouldered the burdens of military service understand the sacrifices that public service requires and we're grateful you're a part of our community. Your military service has the potential to enrich the learning experience of your classmates and help you find better solutions as a legal professional. This page is intended for you, however, not your classmates or your eventual clients. We hope it will help you find resources and support to enhance your time here at UC Hastings.”
