Government Contract LawBased on the Contract Attorney’s course of The Judge Advocate General’s Law Center and School, this valuable deskbook is designed to help you safely navigate the entire federal contracting process — from pre-bidding through award, and on to protest and litigation — with the least risk to your client or company.

Since the last edition, there have been many changes in government contract law.  The executive branch has implemented several policy initiatives through the power of federal contracting, including revised labor policies.  Similarly, Congress has implemented changes, including regulation of contractor business systems, trafficking in persons, and provisions addressing problems that have been identified in the past decade such as perceived misuse of commercial items.  What has not changed is the basic system of acquiring goods and services.

This fourth edition of the ABA’s revisions to the Judge Advocate General’s Legal Center and School’s Contract Law Deskbook, includes updates to references, new chapters (which do not appear in the JAG School’s version) as well as chapter revisions that include material that is useful to contractor attorneys and the private bar.  This edition has been expanded and can be used by military attorneys as well as practitioners who are not a part of the military.

This Deskbook has been cited by the U.S. Supreme Court, served as a foundation for numerous continuing legal education materials, and is used daily by hundreds of attorneys.
