Public service law is hard. Paying for law school doesn’t need to be.

Attorneys with more than $10,000 of law school loan debt, who work in public interest fields in North Carolina, have the opportunity to apply for NC LEAF loan repayment assistance. While funding is limited, all eligible attorneys are encourage to apply and funding will be considered for as many applicants as possible. Decisions will be based on debt load and income. Applications open in early November 2023 and are due in early January 2024. Applications will then be considered by the NC LEAF Board and all applicants will be notified of their status in February 2024. For those accepted into the program, loan assistance will begin in April 2024.
