Student Veterans Organization
The Stetson University College of Law Student Veterans Organization (SVO) is made up of full-time and part-time law students who are veterans, have family members who are veterans, or are students interested in veterans law and veteran issues.
The SVO endeavors to:
- To create a network of students that includes: veterans; students who are family members of veterans; or students interested in veterans law and veteran issues. The network can assist Stetson students who are affected by veteran issues, help establish a community of support, and increase understanding of veteran issues.
- To increase awareness of and participation in pro bono projects that address veteran issues. A goal of the organization would be to encourage members to form long-term relationships with other organizations for the goal of doing pro bono work.
- To increase awareness at Stetson University College of Law of issues that affect both student veterans and the veteran community at large; by providing a forum for a collaborative discussion on how to best address, prevent and resolve veteran issues and issues that affect both the military and legal profession.
