Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP)
Albany Law School has always been committed to making rewarding public interest careers more viable to its graduates. To further that commitment, the Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) was launched in December 2004. This program is designed to help alleviate the financial burden of educational loan repayment upon students who wish to pursue careers in public interest law, as well as city, county and state attorney’s offices, and agencies operated by a city, county or state.
The LRAP allows graduates from the Class of 2014 or later to apply for forgivable loans of up to $10,000 per year for a maximum of three years. Learn more: http://www.albanylaw.edu/admissions/financial-aid/loans
