Recommendations to the Military Justice Review Group on Ways to Improve the Military Justice System


Perception is critical to the proper functioning of any justice system, and for the military justice system there is a twofold scrutiny: first, the system needs to be perceived as just by servicemen and servicewomen subject to that system; and second, it must be perceived as just in the eyes of the public. Recently, public confidence has deteriorated in regard to the military justice system, which must modernize in a way that allows it to become more aligned with civilian definitions of justice. In its report the Committee on Military Affairs and Justice offers twelve recommendations to address perceived shortcomings in the military justice system.
