Abstract : The purpose of the Naval Justice School lawyer course in military criminal law is to prepare military attorneys to develop competent legal analyses and solutions to substantive criminal law problems. Two basic legal skills will be developed in the course: (1) Accurate identification of key issues in a factual situation, and (2) correct application of principles of military criminal law. This study guide is the primary text for students in the course and may also be useful to practicing judge advocates as a 'starting point' for research. While exhaustive of neither topics discussed nor references cited, it does address fundamental concepts of criminal liability, defenses, and pleading, as well as offenses most commonly encountered in contemporary military criminal practice.
