Section 1: OBJECTIVES
In 2005, a congressionally mandated, independent panel review of Military Department legal services recommended, in part, that all legal elements in the Department of Defense ensure that they have a long-term robust program for civilian attorney professional development. In response, the Army legal community has developed a civilian attorney career management program that will be subsequently expanded to incorporate all legal career program (CP 56) members.
This ACTEDS plan provides the information and guidance necessary to promote systematic training and development of career Army civilian attorneys from initial entry to senior technical and managerial and executive levels. The plan is functionally tailored to the legal career field, is systematic and progressive, and it combines formal training with developmental assignments.
The plan aligns with the Army's goal of an Enterprise Level Human Capital Lifecycle Management System that recruits, trains, educates, develops, promotes and retains talent in the Army Civilian workforce.

|D. CP 56 CAREER DEVELOPMENT MODEL||
The intent of the CP 56 program is to expose civilian attorneys to ample formal education, training, professional development, and performance-enhancing job experiences so that all attorneys can grow professionally throughout their careers. Details on career development are located in the Master Training Plan, Annex E.
