Financial Education and Student Loan Repayment Resources for Lawyers & Law Students in Massachusetts

This article is for informational purposes only. It is not intended to be used in place of professional advice, treatment, or care in any way. Lawyers, law students, judges, and other legal professionals in Massachusetts can find more on scheduling a Free & Confidential appointment with a licensed clinician here.

New lawyers and law students can take advantage of free resources developed by AccessLex in partnership with the Massachusetts SJC Standing Committee on Lawyer Well-Being.

 

Financial struggles can be a tremendous challenge to our well-being, and are common in the legal profession, often aggravated by the cost of legal education. Last year, the Massachusetts SJC Lawyer Well-Being Committee partnered with the AccessLex Institute, a nonprofit working to maximize the value and affordability of a law degree, to pilot an education and coaching program. From their work together, AccessLex developed full service resources for new lawyers as well as law students.
