Struggling with Law School Student Loans?

Learn about the College Cost Reduction & Access Act and how it supports careers in public service and government!

Wednesday, June 10, 2009
2 workshops to choose from, attend either:
3:30-5pm or 5:30-7pm
Fordham University School of Law
140 West 62 Street, McNally Amphitheatre

Reserve your seat! Heather Jarvis is an expert on federal loan forgiveness law - the College Cost Reduction and Access Act ("CCRAA"). Signed in September 2007, this new law offers amazing financial assistance to law school graduates pursuing public sector work after law school. However, the CCRAA is complex and Ms. Jarvis' presentation will provide information indispensible to those concerned about law school debt.

CCRAA income based repayment is available to any law graduate with federal government loans who is working in the not-for-profit or government sector. If you follows all of the rules outlined, you could minimize your monthly payments immediately and be eligible for complete loan forgiveness in 10 years. Heather Jarvis is Senior Program Manager for Law School Advocacy at Equal Justice Works and Vice Chair of the ABA Section of Legal Education's Committee on Government Relations and Student Financial Aid.

Find out about qualifying employment, eligible loans, repayment plans, and tax implications. Heather will break down even newer federal loan forgiveness programs for civil legal services attorneys, prosecutors and defenders under the Higher Education Reauthorization and College Opportunity Act of 2008. Details will include updates on the regulatory process and issues of funding and appropriations for the new programs.Reserve your free seat by registering online at http://law.fordham.edu - click on the words "Law School Calendar" and go to the day of Wednesday, June 10 to register for either of the presentations (two sessions of the same presentation).
