"I won't lie, when I received the email from AccessLex, I thought it was just another requirement to check off my orientation to-do list. But when I started the MAX personal finance program, I was pleasantly surprised...I was guided through easily digestible modules that broke things down so I could grasp the topics without feeling like I was being bombarded with difficult-to-understand material. Finally, I was learning the elusive information I had felt intimidated by for years and gaining confidence in my personal finance abilities. I am beyond grateful, and forever will be, to the MAX by AccessLex® personal finance program for teaching me about concepts that will come in handy for the rest of my life."

"The MAX by AccessLex® program provides easy-to-follow financial literacy lessons that can be practically implemented, both during law school and into the future...With so much to think about during law school, it’s easy to push financial planning off to the side, but the MAX program makes it simple and fun to work through the lessons and plan for the financial future. I am very grateful to have been able to access such a helpful program, and to receive a scholarship, which goes a long way toward alleviating financial concerns!"

"I was first introduced to MAX by AccessLex® through an informational session discussing Biden’s student loan forgiveness program. It is extremely user friendly and approachable. Lessons are informative, interactive, and provide useful information for all levels. MAX is an all-in-one resource that is incredibly helpful for students navigating financial planning – providing guidance and tools for managing student debt, making investments, and assessing financial status. It gives students the confidence to handle financial considerations both now and in the future. Thank you, MAX by AccessLex®!

"Practical financial education is not really taught during academic life, so having access to MAX by AccessLex® lessons on managing finances has been really helpful for me as a student. I have also benefitted from attending live MAX webinars on foundations of investing and managing career finances, especially since I will be entering my professional phase soon. The webinars are live and interactive, and I have been able to ask questions to experts in real time! For someone with very little education in personal finance, these accessible lessons and webinars have been a great help."
