Army JAG school in the news

UVA Today has a worthwhile article on the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General's Legal Center and School, located in Charlottesville, VA.
"For recent law school graduates who are joining the Army JAG Corps, it’s the first stop after their Direct Commissioning Course at Fort Benning, Georgia. They receive special training in military justice through the JAG School’s Officers Basic Course before they are sent to their first posts. 
"The largest group of students consists of JAG officers with eight to 10 years of experience who are returning to the school to earn their Master of Laws degree. Of all the military JAG schools, the Army’s is the only one accredited by the American Bar Association to offer this degree. 
"Finally, there is a small group of long-time officers who return to the JAG School to receive certification to become judges."
