We’ve been the lookout for a CAAFlog equivalent overseas, but haven’t found one.  But we have found a few resources for the international military justice crowd.

The Forces Law Gazette (FLG) is a newsletter out of India related to law in the uniformed service. The FLG will be published quarterly by Major Navdeep Singh, Advocate, Punjab & Haryana High Court. The Gazette is available for free download on its website. The Gazette will consist of three parts; (1) law related to uniformed services, (2) developments and miscellaneous, and (3) contributions and articles.

Issue 1 (Dec. 2011) tackled issues of pension and benefits, promotion, discipline & court martial, and others. The issue also includes contributions from Michelle Lindo McCluer, a former US Air Force judge advocate and former Executive Director of National Institute of Military Justice, Capt. Sandeep Bansal (a current judge advocate in India) and two retired judge advocates, Col MS Jawal (Retd.) Advocate and Gen. Raj Mechta (Retd.).

The Asian Pacific Centre for Military Law (APCML), is a collaboration between the Australian Defense Legal Division and the Melbourne University Law School. APMCL aims to increase the understanding of the Rule of Law in all aspects of military affairs both within the Australian Defense Force and among the militaries in the Asia Pacific Region. The website is updated through its news section.

Although not exclusively focused on military law the United Kingdom’s Law Society Gazette occasionally publishes military justice stories. It is published weekly and is the highest circulated legal journal in the United Kingdom. The Law Society of England and Wales publish the Law Society Gazette.

We will stay on the lookout for others and welcome tips from commenters. These resources will be collected on an International Military Justice Resources page linked in the right sidebar that we’ll update as new resources come to our attention.

Many thanks to NIMJ law student intern Henry Castillo from UC Hastings for researching and co-authoring this post.
