Mississippi College School of Law is excited to announce that seven of our students have been selected for active duty in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAG): Gabriel May, Rose Marshall, Sam Kinslow, Megan Donnett, Kevron McMillan, Tyler Bowman, and Ryan Haik. This incredible accomplishment makes MC Law the #1 Army JAG feeder school in the country this year. The next highest law schools had three selectees each.
Additionally, three students and recent graduates – Megan Donnett, Sam Kinslow, and Gabby Cantrell (‘19) –, were accepted into the active duty Air Force JAG Corps.
JAG officers provide a full range of legal services to military commanders and servicemembers in assignments around the world. JAGs rotate through a series of positions in legal assistance, prosecution, criminal defense, administrative law, contract & fiscal law, and international & operational law. Selection for active duty JAG is highly competitive. After law school graduation, those selected must pass a state bar exam and then undergo three months of military training and military legal studies. They will then embark on a series of assignments to posts all around the world.
MC Law has a proud history of producing JAG officers for each of the services. Three of our current faculty members formerly served as JAG officers: Jim Rosenblatt, Frank Rosenblatt, and Lee Francis.
MC Law is incredibly proud of these students' accomplishments, and we are excited to continue the tradition of being one of the nation’s leading producers of U.S. military lawyers.
