54 American Bar Association Journal 867 (1968)
The special court martial is the intermediate court of the Armed Forces, with jurisdiction over any noncapital offense under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Counsel in special court martial cases need not be lawyers, and in fact few of them are in special courts martial of the Army and the Navy. Mr. Sherman argues that the time has come to change this practice and ensure that servicemen are always represented by competent lawyers at such trials.
