Thanks to Anonymous for this great link to the current list of information requests and data reviewed by the Independent Panel established by Sec. 506 of the FY2010 NDAA to review the judge advocate requirements of the Dept. of the Navy.  The links are plentiful, but they include links to all of the Panel’s requests for information to the Navy JAG, CNO and others, and research studies conducted by CNA regarding Navy-Marine Corps judge advocates (e.g. the primary report here and summary PowerPoint here), the Marine Corps’ Legal Servic es Strategic Action Plan for 2010-2015, the July 2009 Report on the State of Navy Military Justice [updated link with full report with endorsement in one document], etc.

Update:  There are also some interesting historical materials in Section E. of the outline, such as this memo on the policy and legal considerations of appointing a Marine Corps judge advocate as the Navy JAG.

Update 2:  Somehow or someone the links are all becomming inaccessible.  I am slowly collecting all the documents and publishing them on a separate page.

    No Man, the link in the Update seems to be broken.

    Hmm, I hope this is just a technical glitch and reappears lest there be depriving us of information being reviewed b y the Independent Panel. I only glanced at it. I’ll see if I can rescue it from my Temp files.

    You’re welcome, No Man. Thought it was a treasure trove of info that was unreasonably hidden from the masses.
