    I was wondering if there is a program in place at the academy to go upon graduation from the academy to law school? Is there anyway to get the Air Force to help pay for law school? Thanks

    I canNOT speak for USAFA but there is no such opportunity from USNA and I would suspect not for USAFA. Once you're on active duty in the USN, there is a way to get the Navy to pay to send you to law school. However, it's not easy and you incur an add'l 6 yrs of commitment (in addition to the 5 from the academy).

    In my view, if your desire is to be a JAG, you should pursue an alternate commissioning source. There are, I believe, programs for each service (assuming you've already graduated college) whereby the military will send you to law school. You should check with an officer recruiter for details.
