Some part time jobs (maximum of 20 hours per week) are available as part of the need based Federal Work Study program. You can only work while classes are in session and NOT during semester breaks.
Students are NOT guaranteed employment. Students who are interested in working will need to come to the Financial Aid Office to see if they qualify for Federal Work Study and review a list of available positions. Students will then be referred to the department for an interview. There may be some positions available for community service for local non- profit and community based organizations. Most community service positions require the student to be at least a second year law student.
Your award notice will list by semester the maximum amount you are allowed to earn. If you work over the awarded amount, it may affect your eligibility for other aid.
NOTE: If you plan on trying to acquire a Federal Work Study postion, you should NOT apply for the maximum amount in the Grad PLUS loan.
