LSU Law Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP)
supported by the Louisiana Bar Foundation Kendall Vick Public Law Fund
Open to LSU Law 2018-2022 Graduates, 2022 LRAP Applicants, and Past LRAP Awardees
Application Deadline: July 7, 2023
Thanks to funding generously provided by the Kendall Vick Public Law Fund (now managed by and within the Louisiana Bar Foundation), the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center (LSU Law Center) is offering a Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) to encourage recent law school graduates’ placement and retention in public sector careers. The LRAP’s goal is to help remove the barriers to public interest practice faced by recent graduates who have incurred significant debt to finance their legal education.
The LSU Law Center anticipates offering up to $5000 to ten or more alumni employed in eligible public service positions in Louisiana as defined in the “Eligibility” section of this website. Consideration will be given to alumni who graduated within the past five years (2018-2022). Past awardees and all LSU Law LRAP applicants who submitted applications to the 2022 round of the LRAP program will also be considered for new awards – all such applicants should submit a new application in order to be considered.
Future grants from the LSU Law program are unlikely. The Louisiana Bar Foundation has, on a going-forward basis, assumed primary responsibility for LRAP programs funded by the Kendall Vick Public Law Fund. Continued benefits will be at the discretion of the Louisiana Bar Foundation, subject to the availability and allocation of future funding for the Bar Foundation’s LRAP.
