Loan repayment program renamed after justice

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The recently resurrected Indiana Bar Foundation Loan Repayment Assistance Program has been named in honor of former Indiana Supreme Court Justice Richard M. Givan, who died in July. The fund is now the Justice Richard M. Givan Loan Repayment Assistance Program.

The repayment program, which began in 2006, was suspended earlier this year because of a drop in funding. The Supreme Court contributed $25,000 to the IBF to reinstate the program and will match new money raised by the foundation endowed for the program up to $175,000. Funds donated through Nov. 1, 2011 may be matched.

The loan repayment assistance program helps attorneys statewide who work for nonprofit organizations serving civil legal needs to repay student debt so they can continue to work with the civil legal aid programs.

Look for more about this program in the Nov. 11-24, 2009, issue of Indiana Lawyer.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
