Personal Finance 


How does a new law school graduate deal with all that student loan debt, in addition to the car loan, the credit card debt, and all the other debt that may be on the books? The commercials on television, family, and friends talk about saving for retirement, buying a home, or planning for a family, but how can someone with so much debt do that? Learn how to create a strategy to fulfill personal goals while trying to pay off the debt on the books. Special thanks to the Illinois State Bar Association Young Lawyers Division for creating this video.
