Living expenses provide for a moderate standard of living for the New York area during the academic year. Additionally, most grant and loan funds are divided equally and disbursed at the beginning of each semester and must cover educational expenses for several months. As such, it is very important to budget carefully so that your funds will last until the next disbursement. Visit J.D. and L.L.M. Tuition and Fees for more information.
