Eastern Judicial Circuit


The Eastern Judicial Circuit is based at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. The Circuit encompasses all Marine Corps bases, air stations, camps, depots and logistics bases within the state of North Carolina. The Eastern Judicial Circuit consists of four active duty Military Judges and two Clerks of Court. The senior military judge also serves as the Circuit Judge. The Eastern Judicial Circuit belongs to the Navy-Marine Corps Trial Judiciary that is a unified and independent trial judiciary composed of active duty and reserve military judges and support personnel of the Navy and the Marine Corps who preside over courts-martial conducted worldwide. We provide crucial support to commanders in ensuring the maintenance of good order and discipline within our operating forces, while always guaranteeing due process and fundamental fairness for every court-martial accused. Our duty and highest calling is to ensure the complete and absolute professionalism, fairness and integrity of our military justice system.
