Scope: This course provides a foundational review of fiscal laws and principles to meet the needs of a general military attorney serving in a Brigade or higher echelon military unit, installation, or agency. The course covers the statutory, regulatory, and policy authorities governing the commitment, obligation, and expenditure of appropriated funds in garrison and when deployed. The course addresses current fiscal issues confronting the Department of Defense.
Prerequisites: Department of Defense civilian and military attorneys actively engaged in administrative law, operational law, or government contract and fiscal law. Non-Department of Defense Federal Government Attorneys may enroll in this course by exception. Any applicant who has attended this course within the previous four years will be rejected or disenrolled.
Location: Due to restrictions associated with COVID-19, all classes and panels will be held live using the ZoomGov platform. It will be the attendee’s responsibility to ensure they have access to, and familiarity with, the Zoom Client for Meetings application (https://zoomgov.com/download). Many government computers or laptops are unable to use Zoom, so it is the responsibility of the student to work with their local IT department to use a commercial laptop or other device that is capable of using Zoom. The Legal Center and School (LCS) will hold several practice sessions in the weeks before the course for attendees to login and ensure their equipment is in working order and able to access the course. Additionally, all attendees will be required to provide their own computer or digital device (e.g. laptop, tablet, etc.), and internet connection capable of accessing JAG University and Zoom. Please ensure you are able to meet the technology requirements before registering for this course.
