The Amy Abboud ('87, '90) and Leslie Ware ('89, '92) Emergency Loan Fund is a revolving loan program established for the purpose of providing emergency loan assistance to law students who have unexpected financial needs arise during the course of the year above and beyond that which can be reasonably planned for or accommodated through the normal financial aid process. Generally, under the terms of the program, any currently-enrolled student who does not have an outstanding emergency loan may request to borrow up to $750. Loans must be repaid within three months, except for second semester third-year students who must repay their emergency loans prior to graduation. Students applying for an emergency loan must demonstrate that they have a potential source of repayment.

Good credit is not required. If you've been turned down for financing on a car or don't qualify for a mortgage, that doesn't mean you won't qualify for a LendUp Loan. Part of the company's mission is to help those with credit issues rehabilitate their credit rating over time (where available). LendUp offers cash when you need it, without creating that endless debt cycle that so many lenders facilitate with rollover balances and increasing fee structures. And with the LendUp Ladder, we strive to provide a path for customers in eligible states to move up and earn access to apply for more money at a lower cost. See The LendUp Ladder for details.
