Tuition and Financial Aid

A Northwestern Law education is a valuable investment that will provide lifelong returns. However, the Law School recognizes that many students do not have the immediate financial resources to cover the substantial cost of a legal education. We are committed to providing a comprehensive financial aid program designed to enable any admitted student to obtain a Northwestern Law degree, regardless of financial need.

  • 74% of the 2014 JD entering class received some form of scholarship assistance. 

  • Northwestern Law awards all scholarships on a combined basis of financial need and merit. 

  • All forms of financial aid, including scholarships, are awarded through an application process separate from the application for admission.

  • The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid awards all scholarships and grants to newly admitted students.

  • The Chicago Office of Financial Aid processes all loan funding for incoming and current students.
