Judge Advocate
The Judge Advocate’s mission is to provide legal advice to the commander and his staff in matters involving operational law; domestic, foreign and international law; and related policy matters.

The Judge Advocate office also maximizes coordination with the legal staff of the EUCOM component commands and with the legal staffs of the Office of Secretary of Defense, Joint Chiefs of Staff, NATO/Shape, and the military departments.

The International Law Division is critical to EUCOM's success.  With the opinions provided by a team of International law experts to accomplish multiple missions, EUCOM is dependent on the timely and accurate negotiation, interpretation, and implementation of international agreements with its host and partner nations.

The team directly facilitates Congressional intent by: saving costs, meeting Congressional mandates, and leveraging other countries' capabilities to reduce the United States' defense burden while meeting overarching defense goals.

The Operational Law Division contributes to EUCOM's regional stability goals by rendering legal advice on issues including:

  • Current and contigency operations
  • Funding U.S. Military operations
  • Counterterrorism and counterproliferation
  • Law of Armed Conflict and Law of the Sea
  • Information operations
  • Rules of engagement
  • Intelligence oversight
  • Exercise planning
  • Theater security cooperation
  • Humanitarian and civil assistance
  • Disaster relief and consequence management

The Administrative and Civil Law Division contributes to EUCOM's regional stability goals by rendering legal advice on issues including: ethics, fiscal law, Standards of Conduct, foreign criminal jurisdiction and military justice, Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act, and civilian personnel matters.
