Scholarships and Awards
The UofL School of Law annually commits more than $900,000 to financial aid in the form of recruiting, academic, research, need-based and activity scholarships or awards. Many of these have been funded through the generosity of law firms, corporations, alumni and other friends of the law school.
Each accepted applicant is automatically considered for scholarships and awards, and no separate application is required. Scholarships are awarded based on academic merit of the applicant. To ensure consideration for all scholarships, candidates should take the LSAT as early as possible and submit their admissions application by the April 15 deadline.
We also make every effort to annouce scholarships from outside agencies which may be of interest to our students. These scholarships have their own applications, procedures, criteria, and deadline.
