Funds disbursed through this program are a loan that is fully forgivable at the end of the year in which the loan was made. More information about the generous terms of this program is available from the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid or online at http://law.duke.edu/admis/financial/lrap . Visiting Students All financial assistance for visiting students at Duke Law School must be processed through the institution from which the student will receive his or her degree.
