Join us for our Annual Reception on Thursday, May 12, 2016, as we celebrate five incredible years of change and progress for military spouses in the legal profession. This year’s reception will be held at the headquarters of the Association of the U.S. Army in Arlington, VA, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.


MSJDN members connecting at last year’s event

Our yearly celebration brings the legal, military, and business communities together to celebrate the amazing men and women balancing a legal career with the unique demands of the military lifestyle. We also recognize employers who support military spouse attorneys and express our gratitude to those making a difference for military families in the workplace. You don’t want to miss the festivities as we celebrate this milestone and look towards the next five years! Tickets are available here.

Network: Connect with community leaders and with other MSJDN members. Although we are a virtual bar association, the connections we make in person are invaluable. Join us for our biggest event of the year!
