The Military Law Committee monitors and considers matters of relevance to military law, military service, and veterans’ advocacy in the ACT. Members of the committee include Australian Defence Force (ADF) legal officers, both regular and reserve, private practitioners, academics, and government lawyers, meaning the committee is well placed to provide advice and comment on military law issues. Such issues impact not just on Society members, but also on the Defence community and the wider public.
