Standing Committee on Armed Forces Law

About Us

The Standing Committee on Armed Forces Law is dedicated to working with its various military and civilian liaisons and advisors to ensure that the military justice system, the environment for the practice of law, and the protection of service member's rights, remain the best it can be. It studies and makes recommendations on:

  1. the administration of laws, regulations, and practices in the Armed Forces and the courts-martial system;
  2. the protection of the legal rights and constitutional guarantees of personnel in the Armed Forces; and
  3. the ability of lawyers and judges in the Armed Forces to practice in conformity with all applicable American Bar Association standards.

The Committee is composed of civilian practitioners with extensive experience in the armed forces and military lawyers, full-time, retired and reserve.
