Certification and Agreement

I (we) hereby certify that all information contained in this application, including addenda, is true and complete to the best of my (our) knowledge as of this date. I (we) agree to provide documentary proof of anything in this application including verification of law school and bar exam loans and a federal income tax return to verify my (our) projected income. I (we) understand that I (we) must arrange for my employer to submit the required Employer Certification Form on my behalf to complete the application.

I (we) agree to use any loan repayment assistance obtained from the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center /Kendall Vick Public Law Foundation under this program only to satisfy obligations arising from eligible loans. I (we) further agree to provide any additional or clarifying information or documentation that the Program Administrator may request, to notify the Administrator within two weeks of any significant changes in my/our circumstances, such as change in job or address, unemployment, reduction from full-time to part-time employment, or any other changes that would affect my eligibility. I (we) also understand that it is my (our) responsibility to maintain my educational loan payments regardless of the date of any anticipated LRAP assistance.

If selected to receive loan reduction assistance and prior to receipt of funds, I agree to secure a letter from my employer verifying twelve months of continuous employment in a qualifying public service position and certifying my current salary. I also agree to provide documentation verifying timely repayment of loans during the 12-month period of qualifying employment.

I understand the LSU Law Center cannot give any applicants legal advice as to whether loan repayment assistance funds must be treated as taxable income. I acknowledge the LSU Law Center encourages applicants to consult with an independent tax professional regarding potential tax consequences from program participation. I understand the LSU Law Center reasonably believes it has structured this LRAP so the award may not be considered taxable income to the recipient, and thus may not have to be reported as such. I further understand, however, award recipients remain solely responsible for any federal, state or local income tax liability they (and their spouse/partner, if applicable) may incur because of loan forgiveness awards.

If selected to receive loan reduction assistance, I also agree to cooperate with publicity efforts. LSU Law Center may use my name, photograph and information about my public service work to publicize the Loan Repayment Assistance Program, both within the university community and to outside audiences in print, electronic and any other format.
