A Rap About LRAP

By Neetal Parekh on October 01, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Hey...hey, hey

So when they said you've got pay to play

Did they mean by going to law school night and day

And forking over more than $90k

Even when you want to go the public service way?

Well, before you start feeling all down and out

And start questioning what pro bono is all about

There's something you really ought to know

And luckily this rhyme is about to tell you so


Hey...hey, hey

LRAP, oooh, LRAP

L is the Loan you're gonna need

And A is the Assistance that will lead

To R - Repayment - so you can serve the publico

Through a - P - Program to keep it economico


Over 100 law schools are in the LRAP scene

To find out about yours, check with the Dean

But not all LRAPS were created the same

With law schools, employers, and states all up in the game


So do your homework before you bite

And know there's support to keep up your fight

To serve the public in a way that's respectable

And let you manage your keep you electable.


Hey...hey, hey

Ooh, it's LRAP.
