Special Session for Public Interest Attorneys
What Every Public Interest Attorney Should Know About Student Debt Relief and Forgiveness
The New York State Bar Association's Steven C. Krane Special Committee on Student Loan Assistance for the Public Interest (SLAPI) and Equal Justice
Works present this free session for public interest/government attorneys with significant student loan debt.
SLAPI was created in the summer of 2001 to review the impact of law school indebtedness on the ability of government and public service employers to attract qualified attorneys to undertake careers in public service, and to develop a plan to assist new attorneys in pursuing public service careers by reducing indebtedness. SLAPI has a two-fold focus: to continue to provide financial assistance to mid-level government and public interest attorneys burdened with large educational debt (who are less likely to qualify for federal loan repayment assistance), and to help educate attorneys and employers on the developments in the loan repayment assistance landscape.
The Steven C. Krane Special Committee on Student Loan Assistance for the Public Interest (SLAPI) is awarding new loan repayment assistance grants in January 2014. You can receive an application for the 2014 loan program by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or access the online application at nysba.org/SLAPI. The application deadline is December 27, 2013.
