The May issue of the Army Lawyer is now online here.
The issue contains another “Lore of the Corps” sketch by the Army JAG Corps’ Regimental Historian & Archivist, COL Fred L. Borch III. This month’s sketch is about the execution of Private Eddie Slovik, the only American servicemember executed for a purely military offense since the Civil War. It’s available here.
Also of interest to military justice wonks is an article by Major Troy C. Wallace called Command Authority: What Are the Limits on Regulating the Private Conduct of America’s Warriors?, available here.
The issue also notes changes to the Army JAG School’s Criminal Law Advocacy Course.
Finally, the issue reprints an article from the New England Journal on Crime and Civil Confinement called Pretrial Advice for Representing Mentally Ill Criminal Defendants in the Military Justice System. It’s available here. We noted the original publication here.
