Student loans are the worst part of law school.

LSD is building a tool to make them a little better.

LSD is building a student loan portal that prioritizes students' needs. The portal is completely free for students and will help students to identify the loans that work best for them.

Pre-register for our portal below. Pre-registration helps us get more lenders to join, which means better rates for all.

Please sign in to pre-register

How does it work? 

Simply Put (kind of)

We run an auction between lenders for your business. Like eBay for loans, where lower rates are winners.

A little more detail

It's all automated, but it's a little bit like:

  • We get a bunch of lenders in a room
  • The lenders say what they can offer you
  • Then they go around again and try to beat each other by offering better terms
  • They keep going until we find the lender that will offer you the best terms
