Military Law

Military law: what legal issues arise?

Active members of the UK armed forces are subject to military law as well as civil and criminal law. Some things are unique to military justice, most often to do with issues of army conduct. Some summary offences are for example adjudicated upon by a commanding officer but the more serious offences can only be tried by court martial, a process broadly equivalent to a civilian trial. The main offences against military law affecting UK forces are in the Armed Forces Act 2006.

If you are a member of the UK armed forces (wherever in the world you are serving) and have been charged with an offence under military law, we can put you direct contact with a barrister who is an expert in military law.

A barrister will also be able to advise on other non-military law legal issues, on which you require advice, such as: employment; discrimination; family law; wills & trusts; and property & housing

Why choose a barrister?
