Is anyone here knowledgeable about JAG Corps stuff? I have a few questions...1) Is it a good idea to pursue a 1L internship with Army/Navy JAG?2) Are there any significant differences (other than the obvious) between being an Army JAG vs. Navy JAG?3) What do JAG recruiters normally look for?4) After completing your service commitment, what are the job opportunities like?
4. Depends on what you focus on. Navy has farmed out most of their non-criminal work, so the odds of you doing civil work as a civilian are lower. Going US Atty or some other federal agency would be easier. Litigation firms may love the trial experience but that would be tempered in that you likely will not be doing very sophisticated work.
Well, I spent my 2L summer in the summer clerkship program with AF JAG. I was picked up by the Direct Appointment Board in August and will be going active duty once I graduate/pass the bar. Feel free to PM me if you would want to talk Air Force.
