The Obama Administration’s proposed FY 2015 budget includes changes to student loan and public service loan forgiveness (PSLF) programs that may concern law students and young lawyers. These changes include a proposed cap of $57,000 on the amount of loans that can be forgiven under PSLF, a limit on the types of loan payments qualifying for forgiveness and limits on eligibility for income-driven repayment options. The ABA YLD's newsletter The Affiliate reports that a White House petition has been started by some law students seeking to have the administration modify its proposal.
