Now that I'm done with the application process and am headed to an actual law school, are there any veteran networks I can use to help me with mentoring, professional development, and career networking (Big law, govt, etc.)? Thanks.
Seriously though, people in this thread can often help with general logistical questions, timing questions, and perhaps even more targeted advice if some of the folks here are in your area or familiar with it. Your school may or may not have a vets group, and if they do, they could be a good source.
As far as an aggregate vets network, there's been some attempt to cross-pollinate at the T14s in recent years (spearheaded by the Georgetown vets group, which is pretty large). Not a ton has come of it as of yet at this point, but that's mostly due to the difficulty of putting together something at which a critical mass of vets from other schools can attend.
Also, many practitioners who are vets are generally happy to grab coffee and chat. If you can get someone from your law school + vet, she/he could be a great resource.
