PREFACE

The Operational Law Handbook is a “how to” guide for Judge Advocates practicing operational law. It providesreferences and describes tactics and techniques for the practice of operational law. The Operational Law Handbook is not a substitute for official references. Like operational law itself, the Handbook is a focused collection of diverselegal and practical information. The handbook is not intended to provide “the school solution” to a particular  problem, but to help Judge Advocates recognize, analyze, and resolve problems they will encounter in theoperational context. Similarly, the Handbook is not intended to represent official U.S. policy regarding the bindingapplication of varied sources of law, though it may reference source documents which themselves do so.The Handbook was designed and written for Judge Advocates practicing operational law. The size and contents of the Handbook are controlled by this focus. Frequently, the authors were forced to strike a balance between thetemptation to include more information and the need to retain the Handbook in its current size and configuration.Simply put, the Handbook is made for the Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen, and Coast Guardsmen of the militaryJudge Advocate General’s Corps, who serve alongside their clients in the operational context. Accordingly, theOperational Law Handbook is compatible with current joint and combined doctrine. Unless otherwise stated,masculine pronouns apply to both men and women.The proponent for this publication is the International and Operational Law Department, The Judge AdvocateGeneral’s Legal Center and School (TJAGLCS).
