I had the pleasure of attending the inaugural event for the JBLM Bar Association today at JBLM. There was a strong turnout of Army JAGs, Paralegals and civilian Army attorneys. The Air Force and Washington National Guard were well-represented too. The event was led by COL Bagwell from the Lewis Main side of the installation. The event focused on ethics with a lot of citations to the Army Rules of Professional Conduct and mention of the Joint Ethics Regulation. The staff that put the event together did a nice job and promoted the event well given the strong turnout. A number of thought-provoking hypothetical scenarios were presented and good discussion was generated. Kudos to those that coordinated the event!
