October is upon us, which means fall foliage and publication of the May issue of the Army Lawyer. The May issue provides the first part of the annual Military Justice Symposium. LTC Johnson provides this overview of the contents of the May and June issues of the Army Lawyer (or, as it is known in the article-capitalization crazy Army JAG Corps, The Army Lawyer–I’m a bit surprised they don’t refer to it as the The Army Lawyer):
This month’s issue of The Army Lawyer contains Volume I of the symposium, covering crimes and defenses, the Fifth Amendment, and evidence. This issue also contains an article on instructions co-authored by two sitting Army trial judges. Volume II of the symposium will appear in the next edition of The Army Lawyer, and will contain articles on the Fourth Amendment, the Sixth Amendment, pleas and pretrial procedures, sentencing and post-trial, professional responsibility, speedy trial and pretrial restraint, and unlawful command influence.
