The College Cost Reduction Act should be a huge help to our public interest students. A graduate who takes a public service job (as defined in Sec. 401) may be eligible for reduced loan payments based on income, Sec. 203, and eventual loan forgiveness. Sec. 401.
A special program has been scheduled during the AALS Annual Meeting to discuss the new act. "Hot Topics Program on Loan Forgiveness for College Graduates Who Work for Government or 501(c)(3) Organizations" will take place on Saturday, January 5, 2008, 10:30-12:15, in the Trianon Ballroom, third floor of the Hilton. The program description can be found on the AALS website.
