for Defence Senator David Feeney
has turned the first sod for the
construction of a new purpose-
built ADF Military Law Centre at
Victoria Barracks in Sydney.
The facility will house both the
ADF Military Law Centre and the
Asia-Pacific Centre for Military
"This new centre will bring
the finest teaching and training to
Australia's ADF officers and offic-
ers from around the Asia-Pacific
region," Senator Feeney said.
"It will build on the good work
already achieved by the centre over
the past 10 years."
The new Military Law Centre
will also host the military node of
the Asia-Pacific Centre for Military
Law, a very successful partnership
between Defence and Melbourne
University which started in 2002.
These legal centres will continue
to train future ADF legal officers
and other officers from the Asia-
Pacific region in facets of military
and international law.
There will be a special focus on
the rule of law.
Over the last decade the role
of the Military Law Centre has
expanded to take into account the
developing needs of the wider ADF.
The Military Law Centre now
delivers outcomes relating to legal
training of generalist officers as well
as specialist officers.
The purpose of the Asia-Pacific
Centre for Military Law is to facili-
tate cooperation among military
forces of the Asia-Pacific region in
the research, training and imple-
mentation of the laws governing
