Title: United States Court of Military Appeals
Author: Benson, Daniel H.
Abstract: The United States Court of Military Appeals is a complex institution, and the task of describing it is at once both demanding and sensitive. The task is demanding because since its founding significant misconceptions have developed concerning the court, its functions, and its status within the federal system. The task is sensitive because the United States Court of Military Appeals is essential to the accomplishment of justice in the armed forces. Any responsible discussion of the court must be highly critical because the Court has failed, in numerous areas, to accomplish its primary task set by Congress. In spite of these failings, the court has made an enormously beneficial contribution to the overall administration of military justice in the armed forces, and in doing so has become indispensible to the American system of military justice.
