Notre Dame Law

Funding Law School

Most NDLS students finance their education through a combination of merit scholarship from the Law School, external scholarships, income from part-time employment or savings, and graduate student loans including both private and federal loan programs.

We encourage you to reduce expenses whenever possible, be vigilant about your current financial health, and be aware of how you might manage repaying student loans in the future. A key step is to establish and follow a budget, borrow wisely, pursue external scholarships, and minimize spending.

Financial Support

Notre Dame Law School scholarships are administered by the NDLS Admissions Office. Financial aid, including all loans, are administered for all students by the University of Notre Dame’s Office of Financial Aid.
