cost of school

Summary: Law school is an expensive endeavor with the average yearly tuition being the same amount as a starting salary, but there are some less expensive options.

Paying for college is no easy or cheap task. Paying for higher education such as law school is even more difficult. Private and public colleges can carry steep price tags with public requiring out-of-state fees and private being able to charge more.
