Appellate leave is the authorized absence of a service member (appellant) from the physical presence of the command, in a non-pay status, pending completion of the appellate review of their court-martial conviction where a dismissal or unsuspended dishonorable or bad conduct discharge was adjudged.

Policy: Use required (involuntary) or voluntary (permitted) leave to aid in removing from the presence of the active force, expeditiously, those members being punitively discharged or dismissed.

NOTE:  Clarification of MARADMIN 559/14, Guidance for Archiving Health Service Treatment Records (STRS) for all USMC Active/Select Reserve Service Members.  After consultation with Manpower and Reserve Affairs, units are still required to forward STRS for members who are placed in an appellate leave status.  NAMALA will now become responsible for the STR submission for Marines that are in an appellate leave status.
