Loan Repayment Assistance Program


Once annually, MC Law presents a $5,000 loan assistance award to an alumnus pursuing a career in public interest law or with a non-profit organization.  The LRAP assists those alumni who demonstrate a long-term commitment to serving poor or underserved populations through either direct legal services or policy related work.  Requirements to be considered for the LRAP include the following:


  • Graduated from MC School of Law in 2004 or later
  • Licensed to practice law
  • Currently working, at least 75% of full time, in a public interest or public service law job (judicial clerks will be considered for an award)
  • Must have outstanding educational loans (from any degree, not just J.D.)
  • All loans must be current or in good standing
  • Cannot earn more than $60,000 per year


If you qualify for the LRAP based on the above criteria, please complete an application by Monday, March 24, 2014, and submit it to:
