Featured Story

The statewide Loan Repayment Assistance Program ("LRAP") begins its fifth year of helping attorneys employed in IOLTA-funded civil legal services organizations better manage their undergraduate and law school debt on September 2, 2014, albeit with significant changes in the program.

The LRAP is a direct result of the 2006 Report and Recommendation of the PBA Task Force on Student Loan Forgiveness and Repayment Assistance and the leadership of Chief Justice Ronald Castille and the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania who dedicated the revenue generated by pro hac vice fees (the admission fee charged to out-of-state attorneys seeking to enter an appearance in a Pennsylvania case) to support of the program.

Discussion Groups and Collaboration

E-mail discussion groups have been set up in the many areas of the law. These groups are a great way to keep up with things and interact with your colleagues. You can discuss recent developments in the law, ask and answer questions, or just read the postings of others to learn about the issues people are working on.
