Financial Assistance

Think of law school as an investment—one that can help open doors for you and can lead to a solid financial future for you and your family.

Need-based grants and scholarships are available to help you pay for law school. The library and the web also have financial aid directories. If you’re interested in public service after law school, some programs will reduce your debt or even forgive your whole loan.

There are resources available to help—you just have to be proactive and explore what’s out there for you! Get informed: visit LSAC’s Financial Aid Overview, and contact your prelaw advisors and law school financial aid counselors for additional advice.
