THE GUIDE TO LAW SCHOOLS
We have been receiving great feedback for the new The Equal Justice Works Guide to Law Schools. From November 21 to March 30, The Guide received 12,414 visits, with 86% being first time visitors. Based on results from our survey, 79% of those utilizing the site are prospective law students, along with a small number of current law students and undergraduate advisors.
One of the most popular features was the comparison view that allows visitors to obtain side-by-side summaries of several schools’ programs at one time. This feature was used 1,598 times throughout this period.
We encourage you to update your school’s information in The Guide with the information most recently reported to the ABA and NALP, and any other changes you would like to make to your school’s profile. Remember that you can make changes in The Guide anytime by logging in at http://survey.ejwguide.org. When you do make changes, please let us know by sending an email to guide@equaljusticeworks.org, so that we may ensure your edits transfer to the live, public version of The Guide. Please contact us if you have any questions.
EDUCATIONAL DEBT RELIEF PROGRAM
Educational Debt We are pleased to announce the publication of a new educational debt resource. Take Control of Your Future: What You Should Know About Educational Debt provides basic information about student loans, repayment options and relief programs such as Income-Based Repayment and Public Service Loan Forgiveness. Visit our website to download a free copy today.
Our educational debt relief team recently participated in the final session of negotiated rulemaking proceedings held by the Department of Education. As a member of the student loans committee, we advocated for borrowers’ interests on 25 different issues, which included regulations governing Income-Based Repayment and Income-Contingent Repayment and implementing President Obama’s Pay As You Earn proposal. On Friday, March 30, the committee, which included representatives from the Department of Education, schools, loan servicers, legal aid, consumer advocates and students, reached consensus on these issues. As a result, a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking with the committee’s proposals will be issued later this year. Programs like Income-Based Repayment and Public Service Loan Forgiveness can help ease the burden of educational debt, but students must make sure they take the right steps to qualify. If you have any questions or would like more information about these programs or the rulemaking proceedings, please email our educational debt team at debtrelief@equaljusticeworks.org.
To learn more on educational debt relief news, check out our Student Loan Ranger blog at U.S. News Education and follow us on Twitter (@EJW_org #studentdebthelp) and Facebook. Sign up for our free webinars to learn about available educational debt relief, whether you are eligible and how to qualify.
