Lawyers helping military service members and their families have a new tool in their arsenal. The lawyers' desk reference manual, Legal Issues Affecting Military Personnel, Veterans, Retirees, and Their Families, is now available.

The publication, a joint project of the PBA Military and Veterans' Affairs Committee, the Military Affairs Committee of the Philadelphia Bar Association, and the Pennsylvania Bar Institute, is available in a three-ring binder format or on CD-ROM for $25 plus shipping and handling.

PBI has scheduled a three-hour CLE course about the new desktop reference for Aug. 5 in Philadelphia with webcasts across the state. The CLE will guide participants through many of the substantive areas covered by the manual. Look for more information soon on the PBI Web site.
