Paying for Law School
Attending law school often involves a major financial commitment. Many law schools offer funding based on LSAT Scores and GPA, however, these funding opportunities can be very competitive and may not cover the full cost for attendance. In addition, it is important to consider program specific factors such as bar passage rate, and post-graduation employment outcomes.
Why start planning for the cost of law school now?
It is incredibly important to start researching the costs of the law school application process and your legal education early so that you can apply in time to be considered for aid. Scholarships, grants, and other funding sources' applications have a deadline, not a due date. Most of the funding sources use a rolling application process, and awards are given out as soon as application are received. Applying late may mean an excellent candidate does not receive an award because the monies have already been assigned to others.
