Keep It Simple Stupid: Confessions of a Bad Interviewer
Tallahassee, FL, United States
Becoming a Marine Judge Advocate presents a unique opportunity to practice law across diverse legal portfolios in the course of a career, gain criminal litigation experience from the start, and lead a team always. Very few lawyers in the private sector get exposure to such variety and hands-on experience in such a short time. Even fewer earn the right to do so as an officer in the United States Marine Corps.
Legal practice in the Marine Corps is both distinct and similar to civilian practice. Its practitioners are known as judge advocates and are licensed attorneys in good standing with their respective state bars. Upon completion of basic officer training and graduation from the Naval Justice School, judge advocates become certified under Article 42(a) of the Uniform Code of Military Justice to represent the United States, as well as individual Marines, Sailors, and civilians in legal matters.
The work of judge advocates may also involve advising commanding officers, overseeing criminal/administrative investigations, and practicing in other areas of law, including but not limited to: civil litigation, tort claims, labor law, environmental law, operational law, cyber law, and international law. In addition, judge advocates have the opportunity throughout their career to receive advanced training and experience in all facets of law and leadership.
Marine judge advocates provide timely and effective legal advice and support to commanders, Marines, Sailors, and their families to promote the readiness of the force and contribute to Marine Corps mission accomplishment.
Here are some of the advantages and opportunities of service as a Marine judge advocate:
In addition, judge advocates will have access to opportunities for continuing legal education (including L.L.M.s), professional military education, special military training (annual rifle/pistol, etc.), and more. With the advancement of your legal practice and education, you will have a chance to lead others (command, train, teach).
To apply, you must meet the below criteria:
*Both scores can be waived for exceptional applicants

About United States Marine Corps
LEAD FROM THE FRONT. Generations of American men and women have given special meaning to the title, United States Marine. There is a distinct pride that comes with becoming and winning as, an officer of Marines. Marine Officers learn and adopt leadership skills that have been tried and proven in every battle this nation has ever seen. Victory over every challenge, obstacle, and adversary is reliant on the decisions Marine Officers relay to their Marines in the form of orders. These few fight shoulder to shoulder with the Marines they lead, guided by an insatiable desire to win, instilled with the confidence to stand in front of Marines who never quit. Marine Officers are commissioned by the President of the United States and take on roles that develop leadership skills and experience not commonly encountered by their civilian peers. Law training commences only after every battle of Officer Candidates School (OCS) and The Basic School (TBS) is won. Only those with the willingness, determination, and leadership ability to prevail will earn the right to fight for our Nation as a Marine Officer.
