The National Institute of Military Justice was formed in 1991 by Eugene R. Fidell, Captain Kevin J. Barry, USCG (Ret), Rear Admiral John. S. Jenkins, JAGC, USN (Ret), and Professor Stephen A. Saltzburg.
In the ensuring years, NIMJ has been actively involved in military justice, filing amicus curiae briefs, publishing books on the rules of practice, suggesting changes to the UCMJ and the Manual for Courts-Martial, sending observers to the military commissions at Guantanamo Bay, providing expert commentary to news media, and sponsoring conferences and events.
