The Military Court of Australia is a proposed court of military justice for the Australian Defence Force. It would replace the previous and deemed unconstitutional Australian Military Court[1][2] with legal grounding under Chapter 3 of the Australian Constitution. The structure of the court was drafted by the Australian Department of Defence and Attorney-General's Department and was introduced as a legislative bill to Parliament in 2012.[3] [4]
