MILITARY SPOUSE JD FOUNDATIO...

MSJD Foundation

Connecting military spouse attorneys using online tools and in-person events to provide networking, education, and volunteer opportunities that equip members to address the unique legal needs of the military and veterans communities.

In 2011, the Military Spouse JD Network (“MSJDN”) was formed to serve as a bar association and networking body for military spouse attorneys, with the goal of improving the lives of military families.  Today, MSJDN has over 900 members from all over the U.S.

The White House challenged communities to remove the licensing and employment barriers facing military spouses.  MSJDN answered that call. We have been working tirelessly on efforts to reduced licensing barriers in jurisdictions around the country. 

But this is only part of the MSJDN mission. The organization needed a vehicle for education, and for plugging its members in to meet the specific legal needs of the military community. So, last year, MSJDN formed the Military Spouse JD Foundation (“MSJDF”), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, to develop our members as professionals, teach them effective advocacy skills, and then provide them with opportunities to use those skills to address the legal needs of  the military and veterans communities. Currently the Foundation has two programs:

Member Benefit Program: Members are currently receiving benefits, and new features and opportunities are constantly being added. With funding, a scholarship for bar exam courses, fees, and licensing dues could be launched in time for the winter bar exam, offered in mid-February. A more robust online space for members could be designed and launched within six months of funding.

Justice for Military Families: We have current partnerships that will launch pro bono programs involving our members in the fall. The virtual law clinic we envision using to execute the next step of these programs would not be ready for launch until summer 2014.
