The Uniform Code of Military Justice (1950)
In the over 200-year
history of U.S. military justice, the Uniform Code of Military Justice
(UCMJ) has been in effect a little over fifty years. The full text
of the Index & Legislative History of the UCMJ (1950)
is linked below. Other documents, which will be added to this page
as they are converted to digital format, will include Congressional
floor debates, the Morgan Draft, the Military Justice Act of 1968,
the Military Justice Act of 1983, and all subsequent amendments
that Congress has made to the UCMJ.
