The Judge Advocate General's Legal Center serves as a strategic resource for TJAG and the almost 10,000 lawyers, legal administrators and paralegals that make up the active duty, U.S. Army Reserve and Army National Guard membership of the Army JAGC. The Legal Center's mission is to support TJAG's strategic planning, and to assist TJAG in ensuring that lessons learned from military operations are integrated in the development of legal force structure, doctrine, and training strategies to optimize legal support to current and future operations.
Established in July 2003, the Legal Center supports our nation's commitment to conforming military operations to the rule of law. Through its four Directorates - the Center for Law and Military Operations, Future Concepts, Training Developments, and Leadership Center - the Legal Center works with The Judge Advocate General's School (TJAGSA) to provide relevant and ready legal support to the Army and the Joint force.
The Legal Center supports TJAG's goal of ensuring that today and in the future, the right number of doctrinally-based, superbly trained and equipped legal professionals will be present and ready to furnish commanders, staffs, and soldiers at every level with expert and proactive legal support.
