   This paper is part of a thesis written whilst studying for a Master of Laws at
   Melbourne Law School, the University of Melbourne. I would like to express my
   thanks to my two supervisors, Professor Bruce Oswald CSC and the late Major
   General the Hon. Richard Tracey AM RFD QC for their direction, advice and
   comments. I would further like to thank the Hon. Justice John Logan RFD of the
   Federal Court of Australia, and current President of the Defence Force Discipline
   Appeals Tribunal, to whom I was Associate to and who guided me towards this
   topic. All opinions and errors herein are mine alone, and do not represent that of
   the Australian Defence Force or the Department of Defence.
