Lewis & Clark Law School recognizes that legal education is an important lifetime investment for each student. Beyond rigorous practical and intellectual training, the law school prepares students for long-term personal and professional rewards. Thus, we are committed to ensuring access for all highly qualified candidates and to helping them obtain resources for financing a legal education. Emphasizing our firm commitment to this philosophy in times of increasing educational costs, the law school awards scholarship aid to a significant percentage of each yearâ??s entering class. These awards are given annually to entering students who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement and promise.
Students also obtain major funds through the federal education loan programs. Keeping in mind that law school is an investment, students should carefully consider how their legal education will be financed and what their needs really are while in law school. Having the option to switch back and forth between the full-time and part-time programs can allow students to work and gain legal experience while cutting down on the amount of money to be borrowed. Some students may even be able to stay in a full-time job and cut down substantially on loans. It is also possible to live more simply while in law school to keep borrowing to a minimum. We are glad to discuss these issues with you as you make your decision about attending law school.
