If you're interested in serving your country, state, and community in the military, there are opportunities available for you as a part-time paralegal in the Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard. Joining the Air Reserve Component (ARC), which consists of the Reserve and Guard, allows you to serve while attending school and continuing to work at your civilian job. The paralegal application process starts at the unit of application.
It can be competitive, rigorous, and highly selective, but each candidate is evaluated using the "whole person" concept. This means that in addition to the basic qualifications outlined below, academic performance, community service, prior military record (if applicable), work history, and leadership experience are also strongly considered. The application process also includes an interview with every candidate to discuss qualifications and potential.
Typically, this interview is conducted in-person at the unit of application. Finally, service as an ARC paralegal requires a high level of dedication and professionalism. It begins with basic training (for non-prior service applicants), technical school attendance, and readiness training and continues with required upgrade training and opportunities for professional growth and development as you progress in your military careers.
