Abstract : This handbook is divided into five separate sections as follows: Evidence; Procedure; Criminal Law; Glossary of Words and Phrases; and Common Abbreviations Used in Military Justice. This publication is designed to explain the rather complex legal principles and procedures inherent in the military justice system. Its primary aim is to assist legal officers, discipline officers, and legalmen in discharging their responsibilities under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. In some cases, the explanations of law have been somewhat over-simplified for the purpose of clarity and represent only general rules. There may be some uncommon situations where the general rule does not properly resolve the problem.Accordingly, this publication should not be utilized without supplementary legal research. Keywords: Law of self-incrimination: Law of privileges: Search and seizure: Witnesses: Court-martial: Pleading: Assaults: Disturbance offenses: Crimes against property: Drug offenses: Drunkenness.
