A Visit to the Air Force JAG’s School
I recently spent time at Maxwell Air Force Base, in Alabama, attending the Corps Career Services Officer Conference hosted by the Judge Advocate General (AFJAG). The purpose of the conference was to inform law school career service professionals about the training, recruiting, and the day-to-day life of an AFJAG member.
We had the opportunity to tour the city of Montgomery, the air base, AFJAG School, and the base legal department. There were many speakers varying in age, length in service, and deployment experience. We met with brand new JAGs who had just completed Commissioned Officer Training and their JAG training as well as with many seasoned professionals, one of whom was a Brigadier General. Topics of the sessions included the JAG, the armed services in general, recruiting and accessions, opportunities, and the realities of deployment.
I found the conference to be extremely helpful in learning about legal opportunities in the military. Of course, it's not for everyone, but if you are interested in learning more, feel free to contact me. As many of you know, I was in the Air Force for many years and would be happy to talk to you about my experience at the conference as well as my time in the military. http://www.jagusaf.hq.af.mil/
