Continuing Legal Education (CLE)



Judge Advocate Division, Plans and Innovation Branch (JPI) assists the fleet in providing legal training to support the established legal mission and to continue the professional growth of judge advocates through courses presented by the Naval Justice School (NJS), the Judge Advocate General's Legal Center and School (TJAGLCS), and the Air Force.  We are able to provide select TAD funding, through TECOM, to help deflect some of the costs of travel and boarding.
