Abstract:

Judge advocates receive considerable legal training through military and civilian schools prior to assignment as a Staff Judge Advocate SJA. Unfortunately they receive insufficient training in the management principles and theories that should be applied by the SJA in supervising the delivery of legal services in a busy command. An extensive Army Regulation 15-6 investigation into the delivery of legal services in USAREUR during 1984 was reviewed by the author to gain insights into how SJAs can better manage their offices and thus better serve their command. That investigation and the authors experience leads to the conclusion that management instruction during the Career Course and The Staff Judge Advocate Orientation Course at The Judge Advocate Generals School, Charlottersville, Virginia, should be substantially increased and that all judge advocates be encouraged to write for publication on management subjects that would be beneficial to those responsible for managing military legal offices.
