Are you interested in the
Federal Loan Repayment Program?

On February 27, 2009, NYC metropolitan area law schools, including Touro Law Center, co-sponsored an important program at Fordham Law School (similar to the program held at Touro last semester) regarding the College Cost Reduction & Access Act (CCRAA) and loan forgiveness. The CCRAA has many implications for public service legal positions in the U.S. and will enable many more graduates to pursue government and public interest jobs without regard for debt. This new law is one of the most significant financial breakthroughs for public service and public interest law in a generation.

If you would like to understand how your loans, or a portion of them, might be paid for you, you should review the video of the February 27 program here (click "download").
