The National Lawyers Guild Military Law Task Force includes attorneys, legal workers, law students and “Barracks lawyers” interested in draft, military and veterans issues. It is a standing project of the National Lawyers Guild.
MLTF assists those working on military law issues as well as military law counselors working directly with GIs. It trains and mentors counselors and beginning military law attorneys in all aspects of military law through training materials and direct communication. It tracks changes in military law and policy.
The Task Force publishes ON WATCH, produces interim mailings on legal and political issues for Task Force members, sponsors seminars and workshops on draft, military and veterans law, produces educational materials on these issues, and provides support for members on particular cases or projects. It sponsors legal and educational work on military dissent, the rights of servicemembers, and challenges to oppressive military policies.
