Loan Repayment for Public Interest Work

Repayasyouearn Philip G. Schrag has posted "Federal Student Loan Repayment Assistance for Public Interest Lawyers and Other Employees of Governments and Nonprofit Organizations" to SSRN.  Schrag is also the author of Repay As You Earn: The Flawed Government Program to Help Students Have Public Service Careers (2002) and The Federal Income-Contingent Repayment Option For Law Student Loans, 29 Hofstra L. Rev. 733 (2001). 

For those concerned that graduates may have limited opportunities to work on the things they came to law school for because of the demands of student debt, Schrag's work is worth looking at given his demonstrated interest in the topic. 

UPDATE: The Georgetown press release detailing Professor Schrag's involvement in the creation of a new federal loan forgiveness program is available here.  A link to Schrag's paper hosted by Georgetown rather than SSRN is available here
