This doesn't affect legal writing or its teaching directly, but it affects our students so we're happy to share this information with you.
The U.S. Department of Education announced the requirements, definitions, eligibility criteria, and procedures for the implementation of the Civil Legal Assistance Attorney Student Loan Repayment Program, under which civil legal assistance attorneys who meet certain qualifications may have a portion of their Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Family Education Loan, and William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan program loans repaid based on qualifying full-time employment for at least three years. Applications are due by August 16, 2010. Get more information at Fed. Reg. 38,999.
