Public service attorneys have important decisions to make about managing their student debt. Flexible repayment options and forgiveness provisions are available, but the details matter and it can be confusing to figure it out on your own.

Heather Jarvis, student loan expert, knows how to break it down step-by-step so it makes sense once and for all.

From this presentation, you can:

  • evaluate whether you qualify for the newest repayment plan -- Pay As You Earn,
  • learn every step necessary to qualify for public service loan forgiveness,
  • understand available benefits from the Steven C. Krane Student Loan Assistance in the Public Interest program,
  • hear about the interplay between Public Service Loan Forgiveness, John R. Justice, and other LRAPs, and
  • ask Heather anything you'd like about student loans

Bring your toughest questions because the expert is in the house!
