The Board of Inquiry Process

A Board of Inquiry is made up of officers who are senior in grade to the officer who is the subject of the hearing. In this hearing, each side presents evidence. A recorder, or a military attorney, represents the government and presents the case against the respondent. The respondent has the right to choose a military defense lawyer and a civilian defense lawyer to defend his or her side of the case and fight for continued military service.

Once the hearing takes place, the Board of Inquiry votes on whether the allegations of misconduct or substandard performance are valid. If the Board decides that the allegations are substantiated, they will provide their recommendations to the commander. These recommendations concern whether the respondent should be discharged and on what terms that discharge should take place.
