To Serve Those Who Serve


A law school education and military experience would seem to make a formidable combination. But paying for law school is an obstacle many veterans can’t overcome. For them, a developing project of the Loyola Law School would be just the ticket.

 

Kurt Schlichter LLS ’94 is a member of the law school’s 14-member advisory committee that coordinates the Military Veterans Justice Project. An Army veteran who attended the law school after serving in the Gulf War in 1991, Schlichter is working closely with Victor Gold, dean of the law school, to make the program a reality. The project has two goals: to help veterans and their families navigate the Department of Veterans Affairs bureaucracy, and to provide scholarships to veterans enrolling at Loyola Law School.
