Here is some useful information:

ABA Directory of Law School Public Interest and Pro Bono Programs

Pepperdine instituted a loan repayment program last year. (Here is its summary). I was told by the people who spearheaded it that it took about 3 million to perpetually fund it, but that 1 million was enough to get it started. Contact the people at Pepperdine's Advocates for Public Interest Law here. They're nice folks. But if they don't respond to your e-mail, leave a comment here or e-mail me. I don't have the time to talk to them now, but I'll help you if you absolutely need it.

Good luck!


Thanks! (and thanks, Evan!) I will pass this information on to the administration officials at my school. I took on this research project at their behest (well, they asked for input -- it was my idea to use blogs to gather it together.)

In doing some preliminary research, and based on comments I got from the alumni office, it seems that it's still a foreign concept to many people that schools could, or should, provide financial support to students (graduates) who opt for less lucrative legal careers. So if a hearty discussion on blogs helps make it more widely accepted, all the better.
