Here’s what you need to know about the biggest update to UCMJ in decades

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to clarify changes to Article 120, the section in the UCMJ that addresses sexual assault.
In 2016, Congress passed a new Military Justice Act, calling for a review and reorganization of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the set of rules and regulations that dictate criminal offenses for service members and how they are adjudicated.
Among the changes are new definitions for adultery and intimate partner violence, and a specific law against sexual relationships between instructors and trainees.
