Financing a Career in Public Interest Law: Grants and Loan Repayment Programs. (Lunch provided).

Please RSVP by Tuesday, February 14 to

Many of you may be interested in pursuing a career in public interest law, but have questions regarding your financial ability to do so. To help answer these questions, PLISF will be hosting a panel of experts who have either gone through the experience themselves, or who are knowledgeable in Federal, State, and local funding opportunities. The discussion will take place on Thursday, February 16 at noon in room 109, and features:

Lorrie Albert, Director, Allegheny County Bar Foundation

Meme Jeffries, Director of Financial Aid, University of Pittsburgh School of Law

Daniel Vitek, Senior Housing Attorney, Neighborhood Legal Services Association

While it is true that public interest law does generally come with the largest salaries in the legal profession, it is highly valued work in the eyes of society. This is evidenced by the fact that our university, local organizations, and state and federal government all provide various incentives to engage in it. If you are interested in learning more about the various grant and loan forgiveness opportunities that are available to those who enter the public interest sector, be sure to attend.

Thanks to the Career Services Office for sponsoring this panel.
