Harvard Law School announced it would waive tuition for third-year law students who pledged to work in the public sector, the Harvard Crimson reports. The program could save a student around $40,000 and is meant to draw students away from corporate law positions. "What this is intended to do is to appeal to students who really want to go into careers in public service but were deterred from doing so because of their fear of carrying around large debt burdens," said the dean.
