Financing Your Education

With a degree from the only law school in the State University of New York system, you don’t have to compromise between the right school for your legal career and financial well-being. Wise decisions and careful debt management will reduce your future debt and broaden your legal employment options.

A cost-benefit analysis makes the point clear. Our students graduate to work at the same law firms and earn the same starting salaries as those who attend costly law schools. However, free from overwhelming debt, our graduates don’t have to choose their career path based on salary alone. Consistent with the School of Law's commitment to non-profit work and government service, they enjoy great flexibility to follow their passion for the law wherever it may take them.
