Our Military Law Practice
Our military law practice will focus on assisting Canadian Forces personnel and service members requiring legal services for career administrative matters involving the military.
Military law is the substantive body of law that defines the rights, authority, obligations and duties of the Canadian Forces and Department of National Defence, its members and civil servants. Military law among other matters incorporates a number of distinct military aspects of established substantive bodies of law practiced by civilians such as tort law, administrative law, intellectual property, employment, and international law, etc. In particular, an in depth experience in the Military Justice System and Operational Law which governs the conduct of military operations is necessary in addressing military law matters in response to Canadian Forces personnel and service members.
McKöena Law Office has an extensive practice experience in the Military Justice System and Operational Law issues such as the Law of Armed Conflict which includes but is not limited to the Hague Rules as well as the four Geneva Conventions and Additional Protocols, the core of military law includes the National Defence Act including the Code of Service Discipline, the Canadian Forces Superannuation Act; the Queen’s Regulations and Orders.
