Not sure which schools are approved, but many people go to one of the DC schools - GW or GULC - and some go to the Army's at UVA. The Navy pays all tuition plus your normal salary. Only certain degrees are allowed - common ones are intl law, enviromental law, and trial ad.
I asked about this and, generally, if you get in, it's an LLM in a JAG field, the Navy covers it. While a lot of people tend to go to the same schools, that's because of experience/proximity/and the smaller number of LLM programs in particular disciplines. But there's no real limitation: if you get into the best LLM program in whatever your field, they'll give you the time, tuition, and salary to complete the degree.
