JAG School Foundation Mission:


A 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, the Foundation was established in 1993, to support the educational endeavors of The Air Force Judge Advocate General’s School, located at Maxwell AFB in Montgomery, Alabama. The School is the focal point for the initial and continuing education of Air Force JAG Corps lawyers and paralegals.

The Foundation is responsible for securing the funds necessary to promote participation of the world’s top legal minds in the School’s unique, world-class educational programs and to ensure the JAG School is adequately staffed to provide relevant, timely legal support and research to Air Force issues.


The JAGSF Board of Directors is committed to fund development efforts that will provide excellent training and preparation so our JAGs can meet their obligations to the warfighter, the mission, and ultimately the American people. All members of the Foundation’s Board volunteer their time and provide for their own transportation and expenses related to their position, thus 100% of contributions directly benefit the School.

The JAG School

The JAG School is the focal point for the initial and continuing education of all JAG Corps lawyers and paralegals. Training begins here for about 120 new lawyers and 160 paralegals each year at the JAG Schools basic courses. In addition to initial preparation of JAGs and Paralegals, the JAG School reaches out to over 4,000 students each year with specialized courses in areas such as Operations law, Trial Advocacy, and Environmental law, as well as conducting surveys of new developments, interests and changes in the law.

The dynamic curriculum is frequently adjusted to emphasize the most pressing and current issues faced by JAGs and paralegals in the field, based on recent and expected Air Force operations.

The JAG School occupies a modern facility, completed in 1994, replete with large and small lecture halls, seminar rooms, full size moot court facilities and state of the art electronics that make world-wide legal education--through live broadcasts and interactive seminars--a reality. Education is extended not only to Air Force personnel but to personnel of other services and government agencies. Co-located with the Air University, the JAG School supports all Air Force professional education programs in the preparation of future Air Force leaders.

JAG Corps Mission:

To deliver professional, candid, independent counsel and full-spectrum legal capabilities to command and the warfighter in support of the Air Force mission.

The Air Force, like other Services, operates in an increasingly legalistic environment, which demands nothing less than the very best legal capability it can field. The Air Force JAG Corps supplies that demand with its talented and highly trained group of legal professionals.  

The men and women of the JAG Corps represent a broad cross-section of America in terms of race, gender, ethnicity, background, and origin. They are united by a commitment to duty and their oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Military and civilian lawyers are all graduates of accredited law schools while Air Force paralegals and civilian support personnel are hand-picked, thoroughly trained professionals. The active duty force is augmented by an equally professional, committed, and enthusiastic cadre of Reserve and Guard personnel, trained and ready to perform on active duty at a moment’s notice.
