ABOUT ARMY JAG CORPS
A unique opportunity to serve your country
The JAG Corps is a wide-ranging practice that includes military law and criminal prosecution to international law and legal assistance — both in the U.S. and abroad.
Being a part of the JAG Corps offers the unique opportunity of serving one's country as an Officer in the Army while quickly developing professional skills. This is exactly why JAG Corps Attorneys gain a valuable career edge and an excellent starting point for a career in public service. In addition, JAG Corps Attorneys can choose to serve either full-time in Active Duty, or part-time in the Army Reserves.
The JAG Corps is much more than the legal arm of the Army. JAG Corps Attorneys are exposed to a wide variety of legal work with wide-reaching impact in just a few short years.
The U.S. Army JAG Corps was founded by George Washington on July 29th, 1775, shortly after he took command of the Continental Army. Since that time, the JAG Corps has played a key role in the events that shape our nation and our world. Read about the rich history of the JAG Corps here.Learn More
