- commission through ROTC, then apply for FLEP as a LT or CPT. https://www.goarmy.com/jag/funded-legal-education-program.html

- you may request an educational delay as an ROTC Cadet to,pursue law school. https://www.jagcnet.army.mil/Sites/jaro.nsf/homeContent.xsp?open&documentId=13FE58A97B0DB74785257BD3006A87EB

It appears that FLEP is the only funded one, but that looks like a lightning strike, 25 officers per year.

This is the only way. They only allow officers to apply to the FLEP. It doesn't matter if an enlisted member has a degree or not.

ROTC is the only one I know. Or you could apply for OCS and then go to the courses.

You have to apply for the FLEP, but I believe that it also requires you to be a 1LT at least (possibly promotable), and is insanely competitive. There is no other way to get the Army to fund your law degree, and it cannot be done concurrently with a commissioning source anyways.

I just graduated law school, so if you have any questions that you want to ask about it, you can message me- in between four kids, a wife, company command (although I'm fixin to go back to being a staff rat, thank God), and bar studying, I will try to provide any answers or assistance.
