Military court comes to College of Law

Loyola press release - November 19, 2010

The Loyola University New Orleans College of Law hosted a special session of the U.S. Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals on Nov. 16.

The U.S. Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals is an independent appellate judicial body authorized by Congress and established by the Judge Advocate General of the Air Force. The court hears and decides appeals of Air Force court-martial convictions and pending appeals.

The special three-judge panel session at Loyola was part of the court’s “Project Outreach,” which holds court away from its permanent courthouse in Washington, D.C., and is intended to educate and demonstrate to the public the operation of a federal court of appeals and the military criminal justice system.
