How to Get Law School Scholarships

With law students in such high demand, it’s a better time than ever to be thinking about scholarships. Everyone knows that law school is expensive, so I’ll go out on a limb and guess that aspiring students would like to spend less on their legal educations if possible. But how does one obtain mythical scholarship dollars?

There are two rather obvious options: obtaining financial aid directly from your school, and obtaining it through outside organizations.

1. Scholarships From Your School
You’re probably already aware that schools might offer you financial aid when they accept you. However, many prospective law students don’t know that you can attempt to negotiate additional financial aid, or even ask for aid in circumstances where you weren’t offered any.
