  • Law School & JAG-Branch Transfer

    I am an 11A 1LT about to head out the door for an OEF Title 10 MOB. Upon return I'd like to possibly attend LAW School.

    Does the NG have any transition programs available for this type of action?

    Everything I've looked at recruits JAG O's off the street. Do we have anything to offer for JAG branch transfers?

    Thanks for Help!

    Yes: FLEP. The Funded Legal Education Program. If you're accepted, the Army pays for your law schooling. If not, you can also apply for an Educational Delay, where you go to law school on your own dime and the Army gives you time to do that. Then you still have to go through the branch transfer process.

      FLEP is for the active component only.

      We don't have a program specifically for law degrees, although the regular educational assistance will apply to your law degree (i.e., federal and state TA, and GI Bill). While these benefits may not cover the cost of law school completely, they will certainly make a huge difference.

        FLEP doesn't apply even though he'll be on Title 10 orders?

          Your status as a guardsman is irrelevant. You have to be in the regular component to be eligible for FLEP.

            I bet his orders have the caveat "will not be acessed into the strength of the regular Army." Even if not, the statutory authorities of the mobilization have that provision.
