About the Judge Advocate General's Corps
The U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps, or JAG Corps, is a government law organization and one of the country’s largest law firms. It defends the Army and its Soldiers in all military legal matters and provides important legal advice to senior Army officials. Its licensed attorneys and judges, called Judge Advocates, fight for justice at home and around the globe.
This collection is dedicated to the men and women, past and present, who have served or are now serving in the respective Judge Advocate General’s Corps of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard. From 1775, when General George Washington appointed Boston lawyer William Tudor as the first Judge Advocate of the Continental Army, to the present time, Judge Advocates have served our nation at home and abroad, in war and in peace, by providing principled legal counsel to their respective services.

Francis Lieber was a jurist and political philosopher enlisted in 1863 by President Abraham Lincoln to draft General Orders 100, the first code of the law of armed conflict on land.
Considered by legal scholars to be the first American law school professor, Francis Lieber’s monumental work has come to be known throughout the world as the “Lieber Code” and serves as the foundation of the law of armed conflict to this day.
