LIPP is available for Harvard Law School JD Program graduates who work in any full-time job for a government, nonprofit [501(c)(3)] or academic organization (nonprofit only) in the USA, or in an overseas equivalent. Coverage is also available for individuals during periods of parental leave from a LIPP eligible position and participants working part-time in order to care for a child. Please refer to the Parental Leave section of this website for more information.
Jobs in the private sector can also qualify for LIPP, but must be full-time and law related. "Law-related" is defined as follows:
We strongly encourage students and graduates who are unsure as to whether their planned employment will meet these criteria to consult with the LIPP staff. Graduates should not rely on LIPP support without having received prior approval. LIPP coverage is not available for periods of unemployment, job transition or volunteer employment.
LIPP offers up to seven years of participation for graduates who are actively pursuing a PhD, subject to the certain terms.
Self-employment may be eligible for LIPP assistance; graduates should contact the LIPP Staff to determine their eligibility.
Graduates who are recipients of support from the Public Service Venture Fund are eligible to participate in LIPP.
LIPP participants work in a wide range of organizations and positions. Check out this section to see where!
