Financing your education

As an aspiring law student, you need to know what financial aid programs and financing sources are available, how they work, and why they can benefit you. Here is a starting point to help you find the money to attend Brooklyn Law School. In the past year, 89.2% of our students received some form of financial aid. Financial aid from federal and state resources is based on eligibility and financial need. We also award merit scholarships and need-based grants.

Scholarships and Grants

Brooklyn Law School provides access to merit-based scholarships, need-based grants, and public service grants.

Federal Student Loans and Repayment

All admitted applicants and current students have extensive financial aid resources available to them on BLS Connect, including student loan debt management, student loan default, student loan interest rates/ fees repayment options, BLS LRAP (Loan Repayment Assistance Program), and Federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness.   

Every admitted applicant has the option to attend financial aid webinars, and to receive one-on-one financial aid counseling. Email Sissel.funaro@brooklaw.edu to participate in a webinar or to request a counseling appointment.   

Yellow Ribbon Program

For eligible veterans, Yellow Ribbon allows law schools and other institutions of higher learning to partially or fully fund tuition and fees. It is designed to provide additional financial support in conjunction with the Post 9-11/GI Bill.

Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP)

Brooklyn Law School was one of the first law schools to enable its graduates to pursue a public interest career by assisting with the burden of their educational debt. The Brooklyn Law School Loan Repayment Assistance Program, developed in 1990, has provided more than $2.4 million in loan forgiveness to support graduates who choose to work in public interest organizations.

Additionally, graduates who continue to work in public service for a period of ten years, who make monthly payments on a consolidated loan with the federal Direct Loan Program, will benefit from the new College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 (CCRAA) and can have their loans forgiven.

Applying for Financial Aid

Because Brooklyn Law School offers the flexibility of both a standard 3-year program and a part-time 4-year program, our tuition costs vary between the two options. Our financial aid experts can help you every step of the way.
