Law School Financial Aid Programs

Welcome to the New England Law | Boston Office of Financial Aid. Our committed financial assistance professionals are here every step of the way to help you plan and manage the financing of your law school education.

New England Law attempts to provide financial assistance to all eligible students. While the primary responsibility for funding educational and living costs lies with you and your family, New England Law does assist many students with scholarships, loan programs, and employment (Federal Work-Study). The amount of law school financial aid available and the condition for its award are based on a number of factors, including New England Law and federal regulations, which are subject to change at any time.

The majority of students finance their legal education with some form of educational loan — federal and/or private. Eligibility for federal and most private loan programs is restricted to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Non-U.S. citizens may be able to apply for some private loans with a co-borrower who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
