The U.S. Government Accountability Office has just issued a report titled Military Training: The Services Need to Ensure That All Commanders Are Prepared for Their Legal Responsibilities.
The report suggests that commanders may not be as legally equipped and trained in military justice matters as some argue.
GAO also found, through analyses of the legal training offered and from discussion groups and interviews with commanders and legal support staff, that perspectives varied on the general preparedness of commanders to address legal issues. In addition, GAO found that the timing, amount, and mix of legal training provided to commanders may not be meeting their needs.\\
