From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Naval Justice School (NJS) is an educational institution of the United States Navy whose mission is to instruct Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard officers and enlisted personnel in the fundamental principles of military justice, civil and administrative law, and procedure. In addition to being licensed attorneys in any state or territory of the U.S., all attorneys in the Judge Advocate General's Corps must undergo training either in this institution, or in in the complementary institutions of the U.S. Army and the U.S. Air Force, allowing them to act as trial or defense counsel at military courts-martial.

The Naval Justice School was founded in 1946 at Port Hueneme, California, and moved to Newport, Rhode Island, in 1950. It has additional campuses in Norfolk, Virginia, and San Diego, California. Beginning in 1990, the institution also undertook to instruct U.S. civilians and foreign government officials in human rights law.[1]
