Duties of Post Judge Advocate

The Post Judge Advocate shall supply professional advice in the conduct of the Post business, or to retain proper counsel.

The Post Judge Advocate shall be the Chairman of any committee concerning the amendment of the Post Constitution or By-Laws.

The Post Judge Advocate shall be in charge of the annual audit of the Post financial accounts as set out in Section 3, Article II of these By-Laws.

The Post Judge Advocate shall be responsible for the orderly conduct of disciplinary procedures.


The Judge Advocate doesn’t have to be a lawyer, but it helps if they are. With our small organization, the duties are relatively simple. However as we expand and grow, a qualified judge advocate can be worth their weight in gold. It is a lot cheaper to avoid questionable business practices and legal issues, that it is to correct them after they are discovered.
