If you are applying for financial aid, 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.
The FAFSA is a needs analysis tool developed by the U.S. government. You are asked for information on your income, assets, and other financial resources, to be used to compute how much you and your family should contribute toward your legal education. Many schools will also require copies of tax returns and in some cases, the completion of a supplemental form. This information helps the law school to develop an analysis of what types of aid you will need (i.e.- scholarships, grants, loans, work study) to pay your expenses.
