Abstract:

Given the increased operations tempo, mobilizations, and deployments for Reserve Component RC judge advocates, the current training and educational models for such officers are insufficient to ensure seamless legal support to commanders at all levels. Additionally, given the trifurcated management of judge advocates among the three components Active, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard judge advocate force structure, the administrative means do not exist to train judge advocate officers to provide The Army and its field commanders with consistent legal support at every level of command. Further, the education, training, and professional development model currently utilized within the Judge Advocate Generals Corps JAGC RC do not adequately meet a transformed Armys needs for timely and accurate legal support. These shortcomings will prevent The Judge Advocate Generals Corps from emulating The Army in its transformation from three separate components to The Army as required by the guidance and direction of The Army Chief of Staff.
