LSU Law Grads - Loan Repayment Assistance Program

Recent LSU Law graduates working in public service positions have until April 1 to apply for the Loan Repayment Assistance Program.

Recent LSU Law graduates working in public service positions have until April 1 to apply for the Loan Repayment Assistance Program, which has been expanded this year with increased funding from the Louisiana Bar Foundation Kendall Vick Public Law Fund. Applications can be submitted online at law.lsu.edu/lrap, where more details on the application process and complete eligibility requirements can also be found. For more information, contact Gigi Gauthier at ggauthier@lsu.edu or 225-578-0733.

LSU Law expects to award upwards of $5,000 each to 10 alumni this year, which is twice as many award recipients as last year when the program was launched with generous support from the Kendall Vick Public Law Foundation.

The program aims to help remove barriers to public interest practice faced by recent graduates who have incurred significant debt to finance their legal education. To be eligible, LSU Law alumni must have graduated within the past five years and be employed full time in eligible public service positions in Louisiana, including 501(c)(3) charitable organizations engaged in pro bono legal services or public defender services, and federal, state, or local judicial clerks. LSU Law LRAP recipients from 2019-2020 will also be considered for new awards.
