Barrett Delivers Romig Lecture at U.S. Army JAG School

On May 12, 2021, Professor John Q. Barrett delivered, on Zoom for Government, to The Judge Advocate General’s Legal Center and School, United States Army, in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Second Thomas J. Romig Lecture in Principled Legal Practice.

This lecture is named for and reflects the leadership of Major General Thomas J. Romig, United States Army (Retired), who served as 36th The Judge Advocate General of the U.S. Army.  General Romig today is a Professor of Law at Washburn University, where he previously served as Dean.

This year’s JAG School Romig Lecture program began with welcoming remarks by Brigadier General Joseph E. Berger, III, Commanding General of the JAG School.

Lieutenant General Charles N. Pede, 40th The Judge Advocate General of the U.S. Army, then introduced the Romig Chair.

Colonel Sean T. McGarry, JAG School Dean and Romig Chair holder, then introduced Professor Barrett.

Professor Barrett’s lecture, “Principled Legal Practice by Justice Robert H. Jackson at Nuremberg,” will be published later this year in the Military Law Review.

Alberto J. Mora, former General Counsel of the United States Navy, delivered the inaugural Romig Lecture in May 2019.
