Rear Admiral Janet Donovan will deliver an Arthur W. Fiske distinguished lecture, “Accountability, Justice, and the Legal Response to Military Sexual Assault,” at Case Western Reserve University Law School on October 7, 2014. A 1983 graduate of the law school, Donovan currently serves as the Deputy Judge Advocate General (Reserve Affairs and Operations) and Deputy Commander, Naval Legal Service Command. Over her many years in the U.S. Navy, Donovan served as an Assistant Staff Judge Advocate to Commander, Naval Surface Forces, U.S. Pacific Fleet as well as on active duty with staffs for NATO Supreme Allied Commander Transformation the Department of Justice/Department of the Navy Litigation Team.

Admiral Donovan’s talk on military sexual assault will provide an overview of Article 120, Uniform Code of Military Justice, which governs sexual assault and rape prosecution within the military. The audience will be provided with a basic understanding of the structure, applicability and elements of the statute. Additionally, the Navy's Victims' Legal Counsel Program, which provides military sexual assault survivors with a dedicated attorney to help victims understand the investigation and military justice process, guard their legal rights and interests and obtain additional support in accessing resources that may assist in their recovery, will be discussed. The discussion will revolve around the statutory and case law basis for the new Victim's Legal Counsel Program within the military services.

These issues have relevance beyond the military. The Statute, case law, and experience of the Navy's new Victims' Legal Counsel Program will be of use and interest to Ohio lawyers who encounter sexual assault issues in a variety of contexts.
