Office of Financial Aid

Financing a legal education can be a challenge, but we in the Financial Aid Office are available to assist you in preparing to meet it. 

Applicants to the LL.M. and J.S.D. programs who are interested in grant assistance should note that the information in this financial aid section is intended primarily for students enrolling in the J.D. program at Columbia Law School.  The Financial Aid Office reviews grant applications for J.D. students only, and the Office of Graduate Degree Programs reviews grant applications for LL.M. and J.S.D. candidates.
