Selected DCLs are commissioned as Lieutenants and sign a four-year active duty contract with the Coast Guard. DCLs will attend a five-week Direct Commission Officer Courst at the Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT, followed by a two-week Operations Orientation and ten-week Basic Lawyer Course at the Naval Justice Schol in Newport, RI.
