Stetson seeks volunteers to help soldiers

Stetson University College of Law is seeking attorneys to volunteer civil legal services to military members, veterans, and their families as part of its Veterans Pro Bono Initiative Team.

With more than a million veterans, Florida is home to one of the largest populations of veterans in the country. Stetson’s new Veterans Pro Bono Initiative Team will serve Tampa Bay area veterans through its Veterans Law Institute.

“We are looking for volunteer attorneys with a passion to serve the veterans, members of our military, and their families,” said Trista Miller, assistant director of clinical education and Veterans Law Institute pro bono supervisor at Stetson.

Volunteer attorneys will receive weekly emails containing current case digests outlining pro bono opportunities in their geographical and practice areas. After selecting a case, attorneys will be provided with client and student volunteer contact information. Volunteers will also gain access to future Stetson CLE workshops focused on veterans law.

For more information, contact vetprobono@law.stetson.edu or call 727-562-7333.
