created in the summer of 2001 to review the impact of law school indebtedness
on the ability of government and public service employers to attract qualified
attorneys to undertake careers in public service, and to develop a plan to
assist new attorneys in pursuing public service careers by reducing
indebtedness. SLAPI has a two-fold focus:
to continue to provide financial assistance to mid-level government and
public interest attorneys burdened with large educational debt (who are less
likely to qualify for federal loan repayment assistance), and to help educate
attorneys and employers on the developments in the loan repayment assistance
SLAPI will be
awarding new loan repayment assistance grants in January 2014. You can receive
an application for the 2014 loan program by visiting www.nysba.org/SLAPI or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application deadline is December 27.
