Overview

An introduction to military naval law focusing on the development and history of law for land and sea forces and constitutional, criminal, administrative, and international law. Thirteen chapters discuss topics such as the forums and procedures used to dispose of military offenses such as court-martials and administrative forums; cases that question and apply the basic elements and tenets of what are termed "uniquely military" crimes; the evolving law of government ethics and the constraints that it imposes on military personnel; the tensions between the constitutional rights of members of the armed forces and the military including the nature of search and seizure and the Fourth Amendment and the use of the Fifth Amendment against self- incrimination; the law of apprehension and restraint; and broad issues of international law such as war crimes and limits on the use of force.
