National Security Law Extern Makes His Mark
After an unsuccessful initial application to the JAG Corps Student Program, Alex Parker was thrilled to be selected for a summer internship at the Vice Chief of Naval Operations’ legal office in the Pentagon. There, he focused on ethics issues, legislative proposals, and administrative law. After that experience – which confirmed his initial impressions of the Navy JAG community – Parker re-applied for the Navy JAG Corps, and, while his application was pending, he also submitted an application for an externship with the organization. He was accepted for a part-time externship with the National Security Law Division (Code 10) during the spring semester of his 3L year.
