Title: A Research-Based Approach to Building a Personal Finance Program for Law Students
Friday, November 17th, 2017
While most of the emphasis about student loan indebtedness and financial literacy programs are on undergraduate students, the significant debt levels of graduate students suggest that research in this area should be explored. This field study wanted to confirm whether law students perceived a need, and/or a desire, for a personal finance program, and if so, what - in an ideal world - would that education look like. From a needs assessment perspective, it is apparent that law students overwhelming saw the need and the benefit from a personal financial capability program built to meet their unique needs.
