An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

As the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, observes in the foreword, this monumental work is 'a comprehensive account of every aspect of the law about the Court Martial which affects or applies to those serving in Her Majesty's Armed Forces.'

If you are involved with any aspect of the military or with court martial, or you are called upon to advise in this area, this is the definitive and most authoritative work of reference on the subject and very relevant to the modern advocate.

In the words of the author, His Honour Judge Jeff Blackett, this new updated and re-written third edition is essentially a legal practitioner's guide to criminal and disciplinary proceedings in the Armed Forces, the first two editions having been written by Blackett's predecessor, James Rant.

The significance of the new edition is that it follows the coming into force of the Armed Forces Act 2006 on 31 October 2009, a piece of legislation referred to by Judge Blackett as `the most significant change to the Services Justice System since the Service Discipline Acts in the mid-1950s' .

Having established a single prosecuting authority, the Act also established the Court Martial as a standing court under proper independent judicial control, thus eliminating the many differences and inconsistence that had once existed between the Services. Although almost completely rewritten in the light of such changes, the book reflects and retains, in Blackett's words, `the essence of James Rant's achievements'.
