Saving Students from Downing [sic] in Debt--NC LEAF

Record #:
The NC Legal Education Assistance Foundation (NC LEAF) aids lawyers with student loan repayment, the first non-profit organization in the nation to do so. Founded in 1989, the program helps students who desire to work in the public interest field, but cannot afford to pay back their loans due to low salaries. Many organizations, such as NC IOLTA, the NC Bar Association, the NC State Bar, and the NC Equal Access to Justice Foundation, have donated money to ensure NC LEAF continues to offer this assistance.
