FIVE SERVICES, ONE JAG ASSOCIATION

Established in 1943 by a core group of committed Army judge advocates, today’s JAA includes current, retired, and former active and reserve component judge advocates from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard.  Our membership also includes private practitioners, law students, academic faculty, and others with an interest in military law. Because the JAA is an affiliate of the American Bar Association and a voting member of the ABA House of Delegates, membership gives you a seat at the table and an opportunity to be heard on matters affecting military legal practice.

We’ve been asked to share the following opportunities with you:

The Board of Veterans’ Appeals is currently seeking to fill many vacant Veterans Law Judge positions. The duty location is negotiable after selection.

Veterans Law Judges occupy unique positions of trust. They are appointed by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, subject to approval by the President.

Veterans Law Judges preside over formal, quasi-judicial hearings, adjudicate appeals, and issue written decisions. On behalf of the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Law Judges decide all questions of law and fact necessary to a decision by the Secretary under a law that affects the provision of benefits and services by the Secretary to Veterans and their dependents and survivors.

Each judge is responsible for supervising and managing a team of 8-10 attorney-advisors assigned to assist them.
