Law Society removes application deadline for the Forgivable Loans Program

— filed under:

Applicants no longer have to wait until they have been accepted into the University of Manitoba's Faculty of Law to submit their application for a forgivable loan.

The Forgivable Loan Program is an initiative of the Law Society of Manitoba, the University of Manitoba Faculty of Law and the Manitoba Bar Association. The Law Society will award a forgivable loan to selected students from under-serviced Manitoba communities subject to them being accepted into the University of Manitoba Faculty of Law. The Law Society will forgive 20% of the loan for each year that the recipient practises in his or her community after being called to the bar.
