Another Positive Step for Berkeley Law’s Loan Forgiveness Plan

As part of its ongoing effort to assist students and alumni amid the current economic crisis, Berkeley Law has upgraded its Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP)—already one of the most generous among U.S. law schools.

Starting in January, LRAP will provide up to 10 years of unlimited support for repaying law school student loan debt for graduates who earn less than $65,000 per year in law-oriented public interest or government jobs. Graduates in qualifying employment who earn between $65,000 and $100,000 will continue to receive loan assistance on a sliding scale.

More information about the new plan, made possible by a loan repayment option under the 2007 College Cost Reduction and Access Act, is available here.
