Uniform Code of Military Justice
Legislative History

In its endeavor to create an extensive and readily accessible internet site dedicated to military legal resources, the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General's Legal Center & School Library in Charlottesville, VA External Link, has focused this part of the site on a comprehensive legislative history of one of the principal documents of military law, the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). The UCMJ is a federal law enacted by Congress; it may be cited as United States Code, Title 10, Subtitle A, Part II, Chapter 47 External Link. In addition to the full text of the 1950 edition of the UCMJ, this website — produced by the Library of Congress Federal Research Division (FRD) — will provide many related and supporting historical materials that not only document the development of the UCMJ, but that can also be used to argue legislative intent. Hence this resource can be an invaluable tool for lawyers and legal scholars involved in the nation’s war on terrorism.

For more information see the Legislative Summary of the UCMJ (OCLC Number 272260676)
For details on the legislative process see How Our Laws Are Made.
