Retrain as a paralegal

Paralegals are the backbone of the legal arena. The role of a paralegal is to assist the attorneys in achieving the mission of the office and the wing. Paralegals do many things, such as conduct in-depth legal research, interview witnesses, aid in the claims filing process and notarize documents, just to name a few. They also prepare Article 15 actions and assist in preparations for courts-martial proceedings.

All paralegals attend the Paralegal Apprentice Course for three months at the Judge Advocate Generals School at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama. To achieve the 7-skill level, they must return to the JAG School for the eight-week Paralegal Craftsman Course. Other training opportunities include civilian paralegal courses, attorney-level specialized courses (like operational, environmental, or contract law), or attorney-level courses hosted by our sister services in the Army, Navy, and Marine Corps.

Interested in retraining into the paralegal career field? Contact the Legal Office at (501) 987-7886 for more information.
