Tuition and Financial Aid

Charges for the Foreign Graduates LL.M. degree program at Case Western Reserve University School of Law include tuition, fees, books and other expenses. Students should also take general living expenses into account.

Tuition and fees for the 2013-14 school year
Tuition:$46,700
Living expenses:*$13,000
Student activity fee:$126
Health insurance estimates:$1,616
Books:$800
Total:$59,700

*This is an estimate of living expenses. Many law students share rented apartments and do their own cooking; others rent rooms in homes in adjacent communities. Obviously, some students spend less, others more. The actual amount will depend upon the student's choice of housing and spending patterns.

Financial aid and other funding

Case Western Reserve University School of Law is pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of merit scholarships for LL.M. students. These merit scholarships will take the form of a partial reduction of tuition, one-half to be credited toward tuition for the fall, and the other half to be credited toward tuition in the spring.

In awarding the scholarships, the following criteria will be considered: high academic credentials, including a TOEFL of at least 90 or IELTS 6.5, personal and professional accomplishments, financial need, and geographical distribution.

For additional funding, applicants are encouraged to seek assistance from their governments or other outside sources. The United States embassy or consulate offices may have information on financial assistance available for study in the U.S. Students in the graduate program may be able to earn modest amounts of money as faculty research assistants or through other campus jobs.
