Scholarships and Grants

Since Brooklyn Law School offers flexible J.D. programs, our tuition is charged on a per-credit basis and differs between the programs in terms of annual cost. However, Brooklyn Law School is committed to addressing the issue of affordability in legal education and has among the lowest average tuition charges of any private law school in New York State. All J.D. students must earn a minimum of 85 credits to graduate, and standard tuition covers those 85 credits, plus an additional 3 free credits for a total of 88 credits. 

Below are annual tuition estimates based on typical student credit loads per academic year:

  • Admitted Students may be eligible for a BLS Need-Based Grant if they have scholarships that cover less than 80% of their full tuition costs. Need-Based Grants range from $1,000 to $12,000 per year and are automatically renewed each year. To be considered for a BLS Need-Based Grant after being admitted to the law school, see BLSConnect for instructions. The deadline for consideration is June 1st. Apply as soon as possible after admission since funds are limited.
