Navy-Marine Corps Court System
Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals (OJAG Code 51)
The NMCCA conducts mandatory review, unless waived by the appellant of all courts-martial of members of the naval service referred to the court pursuant to Articles 62, 66, 69 and 73, Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and, when necessary in furtherance of its jurisdiction, reviews all petitions for extraordinary relief properly filed before it.
Navy and Marine Corps Trial Judiciary (OJAG Code 52)
The Trial Judiciary is a joint Navy-Marine Corps activity led by a Chief Trial Judge who serves as Officer-in-Charge. Its mission is to provide certified military judges for Navy and Marine Corps general and special courts-martial and hearing officers for sanity hearings on confined prisoners. In addition, military judges sometimes serve as Article 32, UCMJ and pretrial investigation officers.
