Seminar Description: 

 

The Minnesota Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) makes it easier for attorneys to work in public interest law by providing debt relief for student loans.  Recently, federal loan repayment and forgiveness programs were created, adding to the help available to manage education debt.

This seminar will introduce you to the various loan repayment and forgiveness programs available for attorneys wishing to practice public interest law.  Trainers will also provide resources to help you navigate through the maze of programs and eligibility requirements. Following the seminar, law school financial aid staff will be available to talk with individual attendees and answer questions.
