The Military Law Task Force (MLTF) is a national committee of the National Lawyers Guild. Its members are attorneys, law students, legal workers (paralegals), jailhouse lawyers, and draft and military counselors (lay advocates) whose work involves military law and policy.

The Task Force coordinates the Guild’s draft, military, veterans and anti-militarist work, and monitors changes in military law and policy. It works closely with the national GI Rights Hotline, the Center on Conscience & War, the Servicemember’s Legal Defense Network, Iraq Veterans Against the War and other groups, providing training, legal support and resources.

MLTF assists those working on military law issues, including military law counselors working directly with GIs. It trains and mentors counselors and beginning military law attorneys in all aspects of military law through multimedia training materials, hands-on workshops and direct communication, as well as the military law library available on this website.
