In Mass Effect 2, you could unlock certain powers with your squad mates, which you could then choose one of to take and use yourself. For example, I was very partial to Mordin's Neural Shock ability.

Does Mass Effect 3 allow you to unlock powers again?

Yes. And, unlike in Mass Effect 2, these powers are unlocked very soon after earning the squadmates to begin with.

It's unclear as of yet if every loyalty power survived between the two games, but the concept still exists, as do the specialty power of individual squadmates (i.e., Armor Piercing Ammo for Garrus).
