FM 1-04 - LEGAL SUPPORT TO OPERATIONS

On June 8, 2020, the Army Publishing Directorate published Field Manual 1-04, Legal Support to Operations (8 June 2020), the Army's principle piece of legal doctrine superseding the previous 18 March 2013 version. The revised FM 1-04 describes the JAG Corps organization, specifies the roles and responsibilities of Judge Advocates in units throughout the Army, and outlines the delivery of legal services and support to the operational Army, Soldiers, and Families. This is the first Army doctrine publication that reflects the changes to the JAG Corps' practice in the Military Justice Redesign, and it implements other important changes.
