Best time ever to pursue public interest law

Even though Harvard just ended its free tuition program for public interest lawyers, they, as well as many other schools, still have a very generous Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP), and public interest lawyers from any law school can take advantage of the federal College Cost Reduction and Access Act.

Right now it is more financially feasible than it has ever been for lawyers to practice in government or in the non-profit sector.  If that’s your dream, don’t hesitate to pursue it, and do check out the entire Equal Justice Works website for the best and most recent information on public interest law.
