Join us for an engaging presentation on current issues facing the military justice system with Eugene Fidell.
Mr. Fidell will discuss legislative proposals concerning prosecution decisions and other timely issues such as:
- Has the military justice system become too complicated?
- Is its sweep too broad?
- Is command influence still a concern?
- What needs to change?
