The Uniform Code of Military Justice is a set of regulations that applies to all members of all elements of the United States Armed Services. It is the military equivalent of the laws in the civilian justice system.

Certain procedures are known by the article within the code that describes them. An article 32 hearing, for instance, is the military equivalent to a civilian hearing to determine if there is sufficient evidence against a suspect to justify charging them with a crime.
