How have finances affected the career decision-making of Columbia Law School graduates in public interest/public service, and how does the Loan Repayment Assistance program (LRAP) figure into their plans for paying off law school debt? Our guests will discuss these questions, as well as their experience balancing a mission-driven job and a public interest salary with personal relationships and long-term goals. With:

  • Jeffrey Hammons '16, Environmental Law and Policy Center, Staff Attorney
  • Erika Vera Livas '16, The Door, Staff Attorney 
  • Jason Yee '17,  New York City Campaign Finance Board, Associate Counsel

Hosted by SJI. Non-pizza lunch will be served. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options will be available. If you have further dietary restrictions, email Diana Pedi at [email protected] at least two business days prior to the event, and we will do our best to accommodate them.
