The Florida Bar Military and Veterans Affairs Committee (Committee) has two primary missions:

  1. to gather and disseminate information, share expertise, and advise Florida Bar members on legal matters that arise from the practice of military law; 
  2. to address problems unique to the representation of service members and veterans of all military branches.

The first mission requires that Committee members keep abreast of recent court decisions and statutory, regulatory, and policy changes that might impact service members and veterans in Florida. The second mission requires the Committee to determine what the needs of veterans and service members are, which includes directly contacting them. The Committee needs your help to execute these missions, presenting opportunities for you to develop your legal research, drafting, and client services skills.
