A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of the May 2017 live seminar, Spring 2017 Military Law Seminar.

Cosponsored with the Military Law Section of the Virginia State Bar

The Commonwealth of Virginia is home to one of the largest percentages of active duty and former military service members in the United States. Regardless of what type of law you practice, you eventually will encounter service members and their families as your clients. In this seminar, cosponsored with the Military Law Section of the Virginia State Bar, learn about the unique trial and administrative issues you need to know to professionally represent and assist these current or former service members and their families.

Plus an Ethics hour from the Virginia State Bar’s Assistant Bar Counsel on recent cases and recent changes to the Virginia Code of Professional Responsibility, and what to do if you do get a letter from the Bar.

Topics covered include:

  • Examine how recent changes to the military’s Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) have affected how sexual assault allegations are being investigated and handled in the military
  • Learn how a practicing military defense counsel views a case — from start to finish — with a focus on sexual assault cases and the issues that come up at each stage of the case (e.g., discovery, statements, theme/theory, merits, sentencing)
  • Understand the capacities in which civilian counsel can represent service members before military courts and administrative boards, with a focus on how civilian attorneys fit into this area of practice that is predominantly litigated by Judge Advocates, and the benefits of a civilian perspective
  • Hear a discussion from the Navy’s Chief Trial Judge highlighting major procedural changes to the UCMJ in the last decade, and a view from the bench concerning civilian practitioners in courts-martial
  • Examine the effects of the trial on the victim of sexual assault
