JAG officers within the first five years of practice or lawyers serving in combat zones are entitled to free ABA membership. See below for details.

As a JAG officer in the US Armed Services in your first five years of practice, you are invited to join the ABA for FREE! You will be asked to re-qualify for the program each year based on your JAG status and original date of bar admission. Section, Division and Forum dues will be billed at regular rates. Two Divisions - General Practice, Solo and Small Firm Division and Government and Public Sector Lawyers Division - are offering one year of free membership upon enrollment.

Waivers of membership dues are available to lawyers serving in combat zones. Dues waiver requests may be made by members or individuals authorized by a member. Membership dues will be re-activated upon the member's release from combat-zone duty.

Complete the form below or call 1-800-285-2221.
