Excess Leave Program (ELP) for Law School

The Excess Leave Program allows you to pursue your legal ambitions while on “excess leave.” This type of leave isn’t counted against your leave account and does not have to be repaid. Through this program, you will be responsible for all application expenses, tuition and fees. You also will not receive pay or allowances. However, you will continue to accrue time for promotion and retirement purposes, and you’ll remain eligible for other active duty benefits such as base exchange, commissary and medical services.
