LTJG Ryan Kinkade of the Navy Judge Advocates General (JAG) Corps will discuss the JAG's Student Program, which enables law students to commission in the inactive Navy Reserve and be appointed as active-duty Navy judge advocates upon graduation. Students can also can ask about summer internships.
- Student Program
Open to law students with at least one year of school completed or graduates of an ABA-accredited law school who has not yet had the opportunity to take the first available bar exam following graduation.
The Navy JAG Corps’ Student Program (SP) is the most common way to become a Navy JAG Corps officer. It enables selected law students to commission in the inactive Navy Reserve while attending law school. Upon law school graduation, bar admission and successful completion of Navy Officer Development School (ODS), participants are appointed as active-duty Navy judge advocates, ready to start their adventure.
- Summer Internships
Open to law students who have completed at least the first year of law school prior to the start of the internship or externship.
The Navy JAG Corps offers summer internships to law students wishing to gain valuable legal experience, the opportunity for academic credit, and greater insight into life as a Navy judge advocate. As a Navy JAG Corps intern, you'll be assigned to a legal command/staff and gain experience in traditional Navy JAG Corps practice areas such as military justice (criminal prosecution and defense), legal assistance (providing general legal advice to Sailors and their families), and command services (advising military commanders and their staffs).
