The Judge Advocate General's Legal Center & School
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 Educational Technology and Distributed Learning - 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.
FCD also reviews the Army, Joint, and Allied doctrine and Army future concepts on behalf of the JAGC and maintains close working relationships with other branch proponents, sister services, and doctrine agencies throughout the Army/Joint community. The Directorate also works closely with the other divisions of the Legal Center on key doctrines, force structures, and training issues to ensure world-class legal support to the Army.
