Even for active duty military, the JAG application process is competitive, rigorous and highly selective. We evaluate each candidate using the “whole person” concept, which means we look at academic
performance, extracurricular activities, community service, prior military record, work and leadership experience. We also conduct interviews with every candidate to discuss your potential in person.
Keep your civilian job while serving as a JAG part time. In addition to full-time active duty Judge Advocates, the Air Reserve Component, which includes the Air National Guard and the Air Force Reserves, also offers a part-time program for lawyers and paralegals. By design, this program is flexible enough to work with most civilian schedules, so you can serve your country while enhancing your current career.
Service in the Air Reserve Component is not for entry-level attorneys with no prior military experience; our program seeks licensed attorneys who are very experienced.
