Even if that’s not the case, it will be three years when you aren’t earning a full-time salary. We are committed to helping you navigate the financial hurdles of your legal education before and during enrollment, as well as after graduation through a generous loan repayment program.

Managing the Cost of Law School
A Michigan Law education is an investment in your future, and our dedicated counselors in the Office of Financial Aid will work with you throughout the application process and your time on campus to identify the resources that will help you achieve your goals.
Michigan Law offers considerable financial support to our students and graduates, with more than $5 million in grants going to each incoming class. Entering 1L JD candidates may qualify for merit scholarships (either outright, or, if no outright award is offered, made in competition with awards from other schools) and need-based grants. (About 75 to 80 percent of our students receive Stafford and Grad PLUS loans.)
We provide guaranteed summer funding to all 1Ls, regardless of job sector, and to 2Ls working in government and public interest, along with a variety of post-graduate fellowships for those entering these fields.
Our Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) is second to none and provides generous support for graduates pursuing modest-paying law-related positions. Financial Aid counselors will work with you as you approach graduation and after you begin your career in order to identify the loan repayment options that will serve you best.
