What a Lawyer Should Know - from an AO Who's Been There" This OT Counsel Corner hosts Charles Park, a Defense Innovation Unit agreements officer with prior attorney experience for the United States Air Force and California National Guard.
Did you go to law school and never hear the words "other transaction"? Or are you working in a group that doesn't have expertise in other transactions and want a sanity check on what 10 U.S.C. 4022 means? Are you interested in hearing how the lawyers approach an OT issue? Set aside this hour once a month to spend with the DAU Learning Director for Other Transactions and attorneys from The United States Army Judge Advocate General's School. Plan to listen to information on a timely topic and then have the opportunity to ask a question or weigh in as part of a response.
This series is intended to facilitate conversations among federal employees. Contractor employees, in-house and private sector counsel should contact the DAU Learning Director for Other Transactions before registering.
This series is intended for counsel to be able to share ideas and lessons learned. If you are not counsel, you are welcome to attend and ask questions. However, information obtained through the OT Counsel Corner does not substitute for legal advice from your assigned attorney.
