Did you know that people in the military have the choice of having a military lawyer to represent them in court? Unlike civilians who are represented in court by either a public lawyer or an attorney. Different rules and procedures also come in handy when handling an offense committed by someone in the military. However, service members can have both military and civil lawyers present them in court while civilians can only have a civil lawyer handle their case. Service members have their cases handles by the military law when they violate martial laws and commit crimes such as failure to obey command, misconduct, rebellion, or sedition.
