Tuition and Other Costs

Beginning with the 2015-2016 academic year Brooklyn Law School instituted an across the board 15% tuition reduction. The tuition reduction is a significant step toward addressing the national challenge of making law school more affordable and accessible to qualified students. The tuition reduction also is part of a package of aid initiatives aimed at engaging a broader array of students by offering a wide variety of aid programs.
