Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP)


Stanford Law School has offered its graduates a loan repayment assistance program since 1985 when it was one of the first programs of its kind. Now the program, the Miles and Nancy Rubin Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP), is widely regarded as the best—it provides critical loan relief that enables bright, young lawyers to pursue careers in public service.

Stanford's commitment to guaranteeing career choices for its graduates is demonstrated by LRAP's success. The program reflects one of the school's key values: that public service is a worthy pursuit and that lawyers have a professional obligation to participate in public service throughout the course of their careers.

The program:

  • Ensures that salary will not drive alumni career decisions.
  • Helps alumni with excellent skills, motivation, and credentials find public interest jobs in both the United States and abroad.
  • Lends funds to eligible applicants to help them meet their monthly educational loan payments.
  • Annual Cancellation of educational debt if the graduate remains in qualifying public interest employment.

Loan repayment assistance can be just the encouragement a graduate needs to pursue the public interest career he or she has dreamed of. Graduates can participate in LRAP for up to ten years after they receive their JD.
