The ‘Manual of service law’ (MSL), also referred to as JSP 830, is published to provide policy guidance and reference material on the Armed Forces Act 2006.
The manual is split into 3 volumes:
Volume 1: commanding officers guide
Volume 2: court guide
Volume 3: legal conpendium
Please note that while volumes 1 and 2 contain policy and guidance on the law; the MSL is not an authoritative document in the strict legal sense.
Other guidance publications on specific areas related to the ‘Manual of service law’ which are available on gov.uk can be found under the related guidance, those not publish on gov.uk are linked below:
