The Judge Advocate General Association of Legal Professionals was formed to provide and promote a spirit of cooperation, friendship, and tradition among our members who represent the Judge Advocate General’s Corps of all military service branches. We strive to encourage and recognize significant accomplishments of our members and to advocate improved leadership and development of military paralegal Soldiers and legal paraprofessionals.
