The Military Lawyer Transition program is designed to help Mizzou Law students entering a Judge Advocate General Corps (JAG) program. This program is needed because there is a period of time between graduation and reporting for active duty (typically six to eight months) where the military does not provide pay to the student. This program allows the Clinic to pay the student to work in the Veterans Clinic while he or she is waiting to report to their first duty station. The program will give the future JAG officer financial support as well as an opportunity to work on behalf of veterans in the clinic.
The Military Lawyer Transition Program is funded through generous donations from Susan Combs of Combs and Co. and Diana Pendleton, through her friend Dorothy Connell Berry. To provide financial support to the Military Lawyer Transition Program click here.
