APPROVED GRANTS FOR 2009-2010

The JAG School Foundation is investing in the education and career advancement of judge advocates and Paralegals trained at the JAG School. The following grants were board approved for 2009-2010:


Education

Lecture Series
Develop and fund annually a lecture or series of lectures to be entitled “The Major General David C. Morehouse, Jr. Distinguished Lecture Series,” to provide specialized learning opportunities for JAG School students and the entire Air University community.

Labor Law Guest Speaker
Enhance the curriculum of the Advanced Labor and Employment Law Course (ALELC) by funding the appearance of Peter B. Broida, Esq. or another labor law expert from the Federal Employment Law Training Group. (Broida’s previous presentation received “off the charts” student critiques.)

The Bencher
Educate JASOC students in ethical leadership theory and practice by providing a copy of the “Lincoln” edition of the Inns of Court magazine, The Bencher, as a resource to supplement their field and classroom assignments.


Recruitment & Relationship-Building

Law School Career Services Officers Conference
Improve relations with law school career services officers by educating them about the unique and important career opportunities available in the JAG Corps. The Foundation will fund the cost of a dinner held during the conference.


Networking

Enlisted Attendance at JASOC Dining Out
Foster the growth of teamwork between paralegals and judge advocates by underwriting the cost, allowing enlisted paralegal faculty members to attend JASOC Graduation Dining Out.

Paralegal Advisory Committee
Underwrite the cost of social events when the American Bar Association committee members visit to study and advise on accrediting the School’s paralegal program.
