A few days ago, the Career Development Office hosted Captain Jacob Marshall of the U.S. Air Force JAG. Captain Marshall discussed his career as a JAG officer with the Air Force, the benefits of a career with the military, and the different practice areas that Air Force JAG Officers encounter. Prior to this event, Tulane Law School students were invited to participate in the Annual Air Force JAG Keystone Conference which was held in New Orleans. At this event, we heard three wonderful presentations including one by Holly Petraeus, wife of General Petraeus. After the presentations, we were invited to speak with one of the three officers sitting on the Board of decision makers for accepting the new Air Force JAG Officers. This provided a unique opportunity for students to learn how to strengthen their applications.
A career as a JAG Officer offers many benefits. There is a wide range of practice areas including criminal law, family law, contracts, cyber law, and international law. Attorneys can gain a critical advantage as they are exposed to a myriad of practice areas and given a great deal of responsibility very early in their career. Every year, Tulane Law School graduates a number of students that go on to careers as JAG Officers and we are very proud of their service.
