The military services offer significant opportunities for law graduates. Three branches of the armed services, the Air Force, the Army and the Navy, have both civilian and military attorneys. The Marines hire military attorneys only. The military lawyer receives exposure to a wide variety of practice areas and gains courtroom experience quickly.
The military often participates in On-Campus Interviews (OCI). Information on all branches of the services are available in the Career Placement Office, or you may contact the local recruiter in the branch for which you are interested. Summer internships may be available with some of the services.
The military discriminates on a basis not permitted by the American Association of Law Schools (AALS) rules, or by the Florida State University College of Law's Nondiscrimination rules. Military recruiters are permitted to recruit on campus pursuant to the Federal Solomon Amendment.
