Judge Advocates have provided professional legal services to the Army for more than 240 years. The JAG Corps has grown dramatically to meet the Army’s increased need for legal expertise. Today, 1,800 Judge Advocates serve on active duty, while more than 2,000 others work part time as members of the U.S. Army Reserve. Reserve Component (RC) Judge Advocate positions are available to qualified attorneys. Those selected have the opportunity to practice in areas as diverse as the field of law itself. Reserve Judge Advocate officers prosecute, defend, and judge at courts-martial, negotiate and review government contracts, act as counsel at administrative hearings, and provide legal advice, along with a wide range of other responsibilities.
