Administrative and Civil Law

The Civil and Administrative Law Section advises the United States Military Academy's (USMA) command, staff, and faculty across a broad range of mission-related legal issues. In addition to advising on issues related to operating a prominent military installation, USMA's Civil and Administrative Law Section is unique among Army OSJAs because our practice also includes advising an elite institution of higher education and a major NCAA Division I athletics program.
Our practice commonly includes:

  • Federal labor and employment law.
  • Government contracting.
  • Intellectual property law in the academic and college athletics environments.
  • Fiscal law (i.e. interpreting the laws controlling expenditures of federal funds).
  • Investigations.
  • Ethics.
  • General administrative law.


Please contact us to request a legal review. Please submit requests well in advance of planned events, as our office fields a high volume of actions and our normal processing time is 10 duty days.
