How will you repay your federal student loans? Consider applying for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF). PSLF can seem confusing, but it’s achievable if you know the steps to take. Jennifer Knight, AFC® from the AccessLex Institute will be discussing PSLF to help you understand the requirements of PSLF and help you get on – and stay on! – track for forgiveness. Since 1983, the AccessLex Institute has continually evolved to meet the ever-changing challenges and needs of the law students and institutions that they serve. They are committed to informing students of the economic realities of law school without limiting their aspirations. The AccessLex Institute is also resolute in appealing to policymakers and influencers to take actions that make legal education work better for both students and society at large. For more in-depth counseling, schedule an individual in-person one-on-one coaching session with Ms. Knight. Sign up for times on either April 22 or 23. Coaching sessions will be held in Room 209H on the 2nd Floor Administrative Offices suite. If those days/times don’t work for you, you may at any time throughout your journey, and as often as you see fit, schedule an individual MAX Coaching session within your MAX account. [For 3Ls, you can sign-up for coaching at www.accesslex.org/AccessConnex.]

*Due to certain restrictions, we are unable to record this presentation for those who are unable to attend. However, this presentation is available via webinar. You may contact ATJI or Student Financial Services for more information and webinar dates.
