Instruction Drills

Go to Appendix I of the Benchbook. Now identify which instructions you would want the military judge to read to the panel members. After you have identified the instructions you would want read, identify what instructions you would have to draft to adequately cover a point of law that you discovered in the Crimes and Defense chapters that is not covered in the Benchbook.

Once you have done that, construct an argument using an argument worksheet based on an instruction you have identified (or want to write).
