The American military justice system has undergone waves of reform, and the most recent of these took place over the last decade. Spurred by a growing concern over the prevalence of sexual violence in the military, this reform culminated in the removal of commanders' power to exercise prosecutorial discretion over a category of primarily sex-related offenses. With this sea change now past us, it is an appropriate time to ask: “What next?”
The topic of this year's symposium, “Military Justice Reform: The Next Twenty Years,” will address that issue. Leading scholars, jurists and practitioners will come together at Villanova Law to discuss the most salient questions surrounding contemporary military justice.
