United States Marine Corps

Jacksonville, FL, United States

Posted on
Apr 19, 2021





The United States Marine Corps is seeking applicants to serve as Marine Corps Judge Advocates. The Marine Corps has 595 uniformed, active-duty attorneys serving at bases and stations around the world in support of national security operations. Practice areas primarily include criminal and civil litigation, administrative law, legislative affairs, contracts, trusts and estates, command advice, and international affairs.

Service as a Marine Corps Judge Advocate allows attorneys to use their legal education and training to support military operations. Marine Judge Advocates are expected to maintain the same physical and martial traits expected of every Marine Officer and have extensive leadership opportunities. Offering a career path that avoids complacency in a single practice area, the monotony of billable hours, or the demands of commercial clients, a career as a Marine Judge Advocate allows attorneys to use their legal expertise for the benefit of Marines and national security. Judge advocates earn the title “Marine,” while using their legal expertise in support of America’s finest. 

Applicants for this position must be pursuing or possess a J.D. from an ABA-accredited institution. If in possession of a J.D., applicants must be licensed to practice law in any state or federal jurisdiction. Applicants must be no older than 42 years of age, and must possess a high level of physical fitness.

The salary for this position varies based on location, but is generally between $60,764 and $85,848 upon completion of entry-level training, and up to $101,799 after two years of service. Applicants will receive up to three years of service credit for time spent in law school, which expedites promotion to Captain (O-3). This position includes a 401(k) with matching payments, 30 paid vacation days per year in addition to 10 federal holidays, medical and dental insurance, eligibility for G.I. Bill entitlements, and an annuity retirement plan set at 40% of ending salary upon completion of 20 years of service.

For careerists, the Marine Corps offers continued educational benefits at no cost, including a number of Masters in Law programs (LL.M.) in criminal law, cyber law, labor law, and operational law. Additionally, a Master’s Degree in National Security Studies, and a number follow on schools on a range of military studies from Joint Military Operations to Strategic Intelligence Studies.

For more information regarding this position, contact Captain Alejandro Hernandezcandelario at with a cover letter and resume, including law school transcript if practicing for less than three years.
