same time consolidate other publications into
a' single, convenient source. The Army Law-
yer replaces, in part, the Procurement Legal
Service, the Legal Assistance Bulletin, the
PP&TO Newsletter, the Claims Administra-
tive Letters, and the noncase materials of
JALS, except those items of. interest to re-
servists and those which must have immedi-
ate distribution to the field. The Army Lawyer
will publish comments on recent develop-
ments in the law and provide a forum for
short articles from the field. It will also carry
news of subjects of current general interest
to Army lawyers.
