Financing Law School
Law school can be a very expensive undertaking, but also a good investment. The good news is that there are funds available for those who want to attend law school. Law students will typically rely on a combination of scholarships and student loans to cover the cost associated with law school. Applicants should consider the full cost of attendance (COA) when comparing law schools. The COA includes tuition, books, and living expenses (rent, food, utilities, etc).
