Senate Passes Bill to Help
Prosecutors and Public Defenders
With Student Loan Debt

Recently, the United States Senate passed Senate Bill 442 (higher education reauthorization) that provides debt relief for law graduates going into state prosecutors and public defenders offices.

The House passed similar stand-alone legislation separately earlier this year (see the Blog's report on this here). The House and Senate will now conference to determine what the parameters of the final Bill will be.
