Courts-martial are adversarial proceedings , as are all United States criminal courts . That is, lawyers representing the government and the accused present the facts, legal aspects, and arguments most favorable to each side; a military judge determines questions of law , and the members of the panel (or military judge in a judge-alone case) determine questions of fact .

State National Guards (air and army), can convene summary and special courts martial for state-level, peacetime military offenses committed by non-federalized Guard Airmen and Soldiers, in the same manner as federal courts martial proceed. The authority for State National Guards to convene courts martial is under Title 32 of the US Code. State that have militaries ( State Guards ) outside the Federally regulated National Guard convene courts-martial by authority of state laws.

While military justice in the United States has evolved considerably over the years, the convening authority has remained the instrument of selecting a panel for courts-martial.
