This issue of TYL In Focus is on military law. More and more, new lawyers are becoming JAG officers (aka Judge Advocate Generals Corp), working in all legal matters involving the military, which mirrors almost every aspect of civilian law. JAGs are in each of the five US military branches: army, navy, marines, coast guard, or air force. But non-military lawyers can find themselves representing client who serve in the armed forces, and this comes with unique challenges. Veterans, for example, need dedicated and effective advocates to assist them through the VA process for securing disability compensation. This issue offers tips on how to help veterans navigate this process as well as consumer law issues that affect veterans. We also address sexual assault in the military and the challenges of being a lawyer and a military spouse. The ABA has many resources for military lawyers, and we’ve included those for you as well. This issue of TYL In Focus is another great addition to your digital library. (TYL In Focus: Military Law, Volume 5 Issue 3, Published February 2018, copyright American Bar Association.)
