Loan Repayment Assistance Program at NYU School of Law Improved

Harvard has decided to waive 3L tuition for students who join public interest areas upon graduation, hoping to encourage more lawyers to practice in such areas. To be eligible students must promise to spend five years working for the government or nonprofit organizations. Said Harvard Law School Dean Elena Kagan, "We know that debt is a big issue. We have tried to address that over the years with a very generous loan forgiveness program, but we started to think that we could do better."

Success Stories

LawCrossing is fantastic! When I am looking for a job, it is the first place I come to. The service is very good and I enjoyed the emails. LawCrossing has more jobs and it is more tailored. Other sites gave a lot of irrelevant results. Your site may have a great algorithm, but it felt like an actual person choosing jobs they felt would be good based on my search. I will always recommend this site!
