Special to GUIDON

The Office of the Judge Advocate General is now accepting applications for the Army’s Funded Legal Education Program.

Under this program, the Army projects sending up to 25 active-duty commissioned officers to law school at government  expense.

Selected officers will attend law school beginning the fall of 2018, and will remain on active duty while attending school.

 Interested officers should review Army MILPER Message 16-053 and Army Regulation 27-1, Chapter 14 to determine eligibility.

This program is open to commissioned officers in the rank of second lieutenant through captain.

Applicants must have at least two, but no more than six, years of total active federal service at the time legal training begins.

 Eligible officers interested in applying should immediately register for the earliest offering of the Law School Admission Test, as an LSAT score is required.

Further, applications must be endorsed by the chain of command, up to the brigade or colonel level, to be considered by the board.

The original application must be sent to the Office of the Judge Advocate General, Attention: DAJA-PT, Ms. Yvonne Caron, Room 2B517, 2200 Army Pentagon, Washington, D.C. 20310, and a copy sent to each applicant’s branch manager at Army Human Resources Command.

Both the original and copy must be received by Nov. 1. Submission of the application well in advance of the deadline is advised.

 For further information please contact the Fort Leonard Wood Office of the Staff Judge Advocate at 573.596.0624.
