Financing Law School

At Washburn Law you will receive a solid legal education and learn practical skills at a practical price. Tuition is similar to that at other public law schools and is well below the cost of most private law schools.

Washburn Law's In-State Tuition program may also assist with financing your legal education (scroll down).
