Georgetown Law Open on Time
The Law Center will open on time, Tuesday, January 27, 2015, but liberal leave is in effect.
All designated emergency employees must report to work on time. All other employees may take unscheduled leave, but should contact their supervisor to discuss the needs of their unit and individual circumstances. Classes will begin at their normal time, unless otherwise noted on the class cancellation line: 202-662-9446 or the class cancellation page. Any changes to this announcement will be communicated through the same channels by 5:00 am on Tuesday morning.
LRAP provides assistance to JD graduates who are employed on a full-time, paid basis (must be receiving a W-2 form from your employer) in a law-related capacity by a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, non-profit international organization, or by a federal, state, local or tribal government agency. (JD degree must be preferred or required.) Some examples of eligible employment include:
- Asylum Aid
- The Children's Law Center
- Catholic Legal Immigration Network Inc.
- Legal Aid
- Public Defender Offices
- Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless
- Rocky Mountain Legal Defense Fund
- District Attorney
- County Prosecutor
Judicial clerkships are NOT considered to be eligible employment for LRAP since it is not necessarily part of a public service track. Law Fellows who are enrolled as students are also NOT eligible for LRAP since their student loans are not in an eligible repayment status. However, a graduate participating in a judicial clerkship or law fellowship which prevents the submission of an application within the two-year window may be granted a one-time extension until the next application deadline.
