Paying for Law School

Emily Wang, second year student, financial aid, scholarships, tuition
“Georgia State is an incredible deal for aspiring lawyers. Because it is one of the best law schools for the value, I had no reason to attend a college that would put me into hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt.”

Emily Wang (J.D. ’15)

As one of the best values in the nation, we want every aspiring attorney to have a shot at an engaging legal education.

Our competitive tuition rates as well as various scholarship and fellowship opportunities, tuition waivers and financial aid options make this possible. As a result, our students graduate with a lower debt load than about 90 percent of other law school graduates.
