Law Center


The Law Center, building 234, was located in this area of The Market Common. It housed the Staff Judge Advocate and the lawyers assigned to the judge’s staff. The building also contained the court room used in those cases involving trial by court martial.

The Staff Judge Advocate provided legal advice and assistance to Commanders involved in handling various disciplinary and other legal matters pertaining to their personnel. The Staff Judge Advocate maintained liaison with local law officials.

In addition, the legal staff members were available to military personnel who needed advice and assistance pertaining to legal matters; and the legal staff would provide legal counsel to defendants coming before military court.
