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.

  5. It was all that kept us from tyranny. So sad that so few among the elite cared enough to guard the sacred trust. Nobody has a more sacred obligation to obey the law than those who make the law. Sophocles No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor. Theodore Roosevelt That was the ideal ... here is the Hoosier reality: The King can do no wrong. Legal maxim From the Latin 'Rex non potest peccare'. When the President does it, that means that it is not illegal. Richard Nixon
