Military Justice Act of 2016 (Smart Pack)

The Smart Pack is a packet of Military Justice Act of 2016 (MJA16) training and reference materials designed for the staff judge advocate or command services attorney to deliver as training for a Convening Authority, and is intended to provide initial training on the changes to the military criminal justice system as required by statute. Included in the Smart Pack is a PowerPoint presentation with instructor notes, an accompanying Instructor Guide, several quick reference guides, the updated Quickman, the change pages only of the Quickman, for ease of reference, and several pieces of legislation and legislative updates. The Naval Justice School will assist judge advocates in tailoring the Smart Pack to the Convening Authorities through several webinars over Fall 2018. Both the PowerPoint presentation and the Instructor Guide are designed to be tailored by the judge advocate delivering the in-person training to the type of Convening Authority needing training, although, in some cases, using the PowerPoint presentation may not be necessary.
