Abstract : This study guide is a primary resource in the Naval Justice School course in military evidence. The purpose of the course is to enable military attorneys to provide professionally competent legal services in matters involving substantive and procedural evidentiary matters. Specifically, at the end of the course, the military attorney will be able to develop correct legal analyses and soluti ons to evidence problems. This process involves two basic legal skills which will be developed in the course: (1) accurate identification of the issues in a given factual situation; and (2) correct appliction of principles of military rules of evidence. This study guide is also intended to be a convenient reference for use by Navy and Marine Corps judge advocates and it provides detailed discussion of the fundamental concepts of military evidentiary law and projects probable developments of evidentiary law in currently unresolved areas. As such, the guide should be only a starting point for legal research and not a substitute for the comprehensive legal research required for the effective practice of law in the military.
