Students studying law have future careers as lawyers, attorneys, politicians, judges, and more. Many of these careers require a long commitment to education. The good news is that you don’t have to be rich to go to law school. Although the costs can reach more than $200,000, there are many scholarships available to students who want to pursue a degree in law. Scholarships for law school range from $500 to $15,000 and more. Legacy and memorial foundations, professional associations, nonprofits, social organizations, law firms, governmental agencies, and schools are just some of the organizations offering scholarships. You should also look for law scholarships offered by the American Bar Association or even the college you plan to attend, as there are some college-based awards for law majors.
