“We aspire to be a premier law school, as well as an integral part of a great university which claims the Catholic tradition as part of its intellectual heritage.” From the Mission Statement of Notre Dame Law School

Enhancing our Loan Repayment Assistance Program

Numerous alumni receive student loan assistance through Notre Dame Law School’s Loan Repayment Assistance Program. To date, the program has provided more than $1.7 million to NDLS graduates who pursue public-service careers. Dean Nell Jessup Newton considers LRAP a budget priority when allocating donor dollars, and encourages benefactors to increase their support.

Continued Funding for our Bridge-to-Practice Program

Thanks to the Law School’s generous benefactors, the Notre Dame Bridge-to-Practice Program provides participating graduates stipends for working with a government or nonprofit employer. The program enables qualified NDLS graduates to gain practical, professional legal experience and develop additional contacts and references — all while providing a valuable service to the public. Employers participating in the program include judges, prosecutor’s offices, defender’s offices, and non-governmental public-service organizations.
