Financing Your Legal Education

Attending law school is a significant investment of not only time but also money. The cost of a three-year law school education may exceed $150,000 (one must take into account not just tuition, but the cost of books, a computer, living expenses, etc.). While the cost is high, going to law school is not out of reach for many students, as there are several possible sources of financial aid. The three main sources are:

The Law School Admission Council website, which includes Financial Aid for Law School: A Preliminary Guide, is an excellent starting point for your further research into identifying primary sources of aid, learning the basic facts about eligibility, and finding out where to get more information. Because policies and availability of funding varies by school, you should also review financial-aid information provided by the law schools in which you are interested.

To search the web for scholarship programs, go to FastWeb or FastAID.
