Roles in the Corps: Advanced Opportunities in Law

After initial officer training at The Basic School, Marine Corps Judge Advocates train in the military justice system at the Naval Justice School (NJS) in Newport, RI. At NJS, they learn the basic aspects of military law, including the Uniform Code of Military Justice, Criminal Law and Procedure, Operational Law, Trial Advocacy, and Administrative Law. This knowledge prepares them to fight for and defend their fellow Marines in the courtroom.

About the United States Marine Corps:

The Marine Corps defends the people of the United States at home and abroad. Within every Marine is the willingness to engage and determination to defeat any adversary, and it is this fighting spirit that allows us to fight and win our Nation’s battles. To those seeking to fight alongside men and women for a common cause worthy of their service, the Marine Corps offers the opportunity to pursue and earn victory for our Nation, our communities and our Corps.

The mission of the United States Marine Corps is made up of three promises: We make Marines, we win our Nation’s battles, and we develop quality citizens prepared to fight and win battles.

You don’t join the Marines—you become one, forged in the crucible of training aboard our recruit depots on Parris Island, South Carolina, and in San Diego, California, or through the dedication required of officer candidates at Officer Candidates School in Quantico, Virginia. Beyond the physical requirements, aspiring Marines must prove they have the honor, courage, and commitment to face and defeat any obstacle.

Today, more than 180,000 enlisted Marines and 23,000 Marine officers serve in active duty or reserve forces on bases and in communities around the world, proudly carrying with them the core values of the Marine Corps.
