Military law attorneys have experience with The Uniform Code of Military Justice, which is the law that applies to members of the armed forces. These lawyers are often called “JAGs” or Judge Advocate Generals. Military law attorneys prosecute or defend troops court-martialed in cases of discipline or disobedience of a lawful command. For example, if you are an army private and refuse an order, a military trial would be held, with one military law attorney representing the Army (and aiming to prove the disobedience charge), and another military law attorney defending you.
