Domestic Operational Law Handbook for Judge Advocates

October 1, 2013

First published in April 2001, this handbook is a product of the Center for Law and Military Operations (CLAMO). It is designed as a resource for operational lawyers involved in domestic support operations. The handbook's contents are based on statutes, national policy, Department of Defense (DoD) Directives, joint publications, service regulations and field manuals, and lessons learned. This edition includes substantial revisions, incorporating new guidance as set forth in DoD Directive 3025.18 (Defense Support of Civil Authorities), DoD Instruction 3025.21 (Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies), numerous new National Planning Framework documents, and many other recently updated publications. It provides information on wildfire response, emergency mutual assistance compacts, the role of the National Guard and Army units such as Army North and Joint TaskCivil Support, and provides lessons learned from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill and Hurricane Sandy of 2012. The purpose of the handbook is to serve as an advisory, working reference and training tool for judge advocates.
