The Legal Career Resources column is presented by LawCrossing, America's leading legal job search site dedicated to getting jobs for legal professionals.
On April 3 Senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA) introduced legislation that would make sweeping changes to federal financial aid. The bill, given the short name ''Strengthening Student Aid for All Act,'' is intended to ensure students have sufficient access to financial aid, in the forms of both grants and loans.
Thanks to Law School Loans, I was not only able to lock in a low-interest rate, but also reduce it through their payment incentives, something that I was told by my current lender was impossible. The reduction in my interest rate saved me $40,123 in unnecessary interest. - Sherman S. Daytona Beach, FL
