Loan Repayment &
Public Interest Funds--2006 Ed.

The following schools offer LRAP money, and a PILF summer stipend.  This data was originally collected at the Law Forums in 1995.  In 2005 we asked the question again.   This list is a combination of both.  New data is not marked in any special way; old data is marked with an asterisk *.  

Why is there old data?  These are the schools we were unable to interview in 2005; I figured old data might be better than none at all.  

You may notice that some schools have a combination of old and new data.  This means we got partial information now, and left up the old data where we were unable to get more recent information.  

The reason we're not retiring this data is that Federal guidelines have made it less changeable than it used to be.  I'd explain better if I understood it; it has something to do with taxable income. Instead of paying your loans, schools give you money proportional to your loans but not taxable (or something like that).

No matter what the system, funds vary quite a bit from year to year. If you're considering public interest work, investigate carefully.
