Financing a legal education is not easy. Tuition at law schools varies significantly.
Many state schools offer special tuition rates for bona fide residents of the given state. Out-of-state tuition for non-residents at such state institutions still tends to be a fairly good buy, as far as cost goes. Private institutions range from the moderately affordable to the outrageously expensive. The Official Guide to U.S. Law Schools and other law school reference books can give you an idea of law school tuition ranges. You will have to check with each law school to find out exact amounts for current tuition and related expenses.
You should begin by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available at the Clark financial aid office, or from the law schools to which you are applying.
Scholarships and Grants
As scholarships and grants do not have to be paid back, you should look into every possibility to finance your legal education via this funding.
