TONIGHT: Veterans Day Panel

Please join the Military Law Society as we honor Veterans Day with a panel and happy hour reception. The Veterans Day Panel will include Georgetown Law students who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan since 9/11. Panelists will share their experiences and opinions on military and veterans issues. Pizza and soda will be provided at the event. A happy hour reception will follow the panel at the Billy Goat.
Please promote this event amongst your friends, classmates, and professors. This is the most meaningful event MLS puts on every year.
