Work-Study Program

J.D. students who meet federal financial aid need standards after their first year and wish to work with a designated employer may participate in the work-study program. Depending on the availability of federal and matching employer funds, on- and off-campus positions are available during the academic year and summer to students who have completed at least one year of study. Off campus work-study positions require Pennsylvania residency.
