Law Student Loan Re-Payment Grants

In 2008-2009, student loan grants totaling $350,000 will be distributed to 80 public interest lawyers participating in the Student Loan Repayment Assistance Program. These funds, up to $400 per month per lawyer, will help to offset cumbersome law school debt. This is almost double the number of 2007-2008 beneficiaries, due to additional funding for the program from the Texas Access to Justice Foundation. These attorneys carry an average student loan debt of $79,374. Their average monthly loan payments total $613, while their average yearly salary is less than $43,500. Public interest staff attorneys from 21 Texas Public Interest organizations are currently receiving assistance.
