Moss, Frederick E.
Huffman, Walter B.
There are few attorneys that specialize in acquisition law, and senior Army leadership requested that the Judge Advocate General (JAG) office become more involved in major acquisitions. In response, JAG increased training in acquisition law, increased the number of JAGC officers eligible to pursue an L.L.C. in government contracting, and increased JAGC’s participation in major acquisitions. This article discusses the need for and the actual implementation of an acquisition legal specialty program as well as the goals of the program.
