Abstract:

The Commanders Handbook is divided into five separate sections as follows I Evidence II Procedure III Criminal Law IV Civil Law V Glossary of Words and Phrases. This publication is designed to explain the rather complex legal principles and procedures inherent in the military justice and civil law system. Its aim is to assist Naval Commanders in discharging their responsibilities under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. In some cases, the explanations of law have been somewhat 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.
