The life of an Army parelegal is very vigorous, yet rewarding. You will work alongside some of the best JAG attorneys in the world. However, you will be required to be a Soldier as well as a paralegal. An Army paralegal is not for someone who has trouble balancing variety of tasks and clients. The work-life balance depends on the office and the jurisdiction. Some offices are busier than others. Stateside you can expect to have regular hours like a civilian job. On deployment paralegals are required to work more.
