Loan Repayment Assistance Program

The John Marshall Law School has created a Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) to assist graduates working in qualified public interest employment. The program recognizes the fact that government and public interest jobs offer excellent opportunities for John Marshall graduates, but the necessity of paying school loans and the lower pay levels of these jobs can discourage graduates from pursuing these positions. Up to ten graduates will be recipients of the awards, receiving $5,000 each.

LRAP at John Marshall was established with a generous donation from The John Marshall Law School Board of Trustees. Additionally, in March 2009, students voted to adopt a per-semester fee of $10 per student to be applied to the LRAP fund. The fee was implemented beginning in fall 2009, adding more than $6,000 annually to the fund. Although the generous donation by the Board of Trustees is a great beginning to remedying the issue, much more is needed to help this essential program continue.

Please note that completed applications are due by September 30, 2013. For more information about the award contact Associate Dean William Powers at 312.987.1435.
