Start Preamble


Department of Defense.




The Secretary of Defense directed the General Counsel of the Department of Defense (the General Counsel) to conduct a comprehensive review of the military justice system. To carry out the review, the General Counsel established the Military Justice Review Group (MJRG). The MJRG's review is focused on the structure and operation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and the Manual for Courts-Martial (MCM).

The General Counsel invites members of the public to suggest areas for review by the MJRG concerning both substantive military law and military justice procedures, as well as submit specific proposals to amend the UCMJ and the MCM. Please provide supporting rationale for any proposed changes.
