The Most Common Government Loan Programs

When you need to borrow money, the U.S. government can be an appealing source of funding. Those loans typically have borrower-friendly features—they’re relatively easy to qualify for, they might have lower rates than you can find with private lenders. But finding out about government loan programs and taking advantage of them can be a challenge.

How Government Loans Work

In many cases, the government does not lend money directly. Instead, private lenders like banks and finance companies provide funding, and the U.S. government guarantees the loan. Put another way, the government promises to repay your lender if you, the borrower, fail to do so. 

Government guarantees reduce risk and make lenders more willing to lend at attractive rates. Plus you’re more likely to get approved in situations when you might not otherwise qualify for a loan.

There are several types of loans available, and new programs occasionally come up in

Different Types of Law Degrees

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), becoming a lawyer requires a minimum of two degrees over the course of 7 years of full-time study – 4 years for an undergraduate degree, followed by a 3 year law degree earned from a law school accredited by the ABA.

If you are considering law school, generally there are three different types of law degrees a person can earn in the U.S.A. These degrees include a Juris Doctor, a Master of Laws, and a Doctor of Juridical Science.

Law Schools

Columbia Law School has decided to push back on-campus interviews for summer associates until January 2021 amid pressure from law firms, according to a published report.

Several other law schools are also considering delays, according to the report by Law.com.

Law firms interview students who have finished their first year of law school in late July or early August, Law.com explains. That gives firms a full year of grades to consider for their summer associate programs.

But several top schools are either requiring or mandating pass-fail grades this semester as they go online in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. That would give law firms just one semester of grades to consider if on-campus interviews are conducted this summer.

Several major New York law firms are
