    Take Event Survey

    During this session we welcome back Galina Fomenkova from the Department of Justice and Andy Smith from U.S. Army Legal Services Agency as well as welcome Maj. Fix for his debut to talk about OT bid protests. 

    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 attending.  

    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.
