Dean's Merit Scholarship
Dean’s Merit Scholarships are awarded based on the individual’s credentials, potential for success and need.  All admitted applicants who graduated in the top half of their law school graduating class will receive a minimum Dean’s Merit Scholarship.  The minimum awards are:

  • An admitted applicant graduating in top 25% of their JD class will receive a minimum scholarship of $12,000, resulting in a net tuition of $33,672
  • ​An admitted applicant graduating in top 50% of their JD class will receive a minimum scholarship of $8,000, resulting in a net tuition of $37,672

Dean’s Merit Scholarships may be awarded to applicants who did not graduate in the top half of the JD class and awards higher than the minimums stated above may be given based on individual factors, but those are not awarded automatically.  Applicants interested in applying for such scholarships must complete the Scholarship Application form and submit it with their applications.   A scholarship request has no impact on the admission decision but must be applied for during the admission process.
