About the Program

The goals of the UNC School of Law's Loan Repayment Assistance Program are:

  • To encourage students to enter permanent public service employment without regard to debt burden; and
  • To assist graduates entering public service with law school loan debt.

The program aims to supplement other available sources of loan repayment assistance so as to permit graduates to perform public service in North Carolina, the nation and the world, without being restricted or discouraged by law school debt.

2016 Assistance Dates

Due to administrative and personnel changes at the School of Law, we are shifting the application deadline.  Our plan is for this shift in timeline to be for only one year.  Therefore, our intention is that the 2017 timeline will be the same as previous years, with the application due in November and the first check mailed in late January.
