A bachelor’s or master’s degree in law can cost between $47,000 and $56,000, depending on the type of law school and whether you are enrolled in a traditional law school or a public law school, according to a new study.
The National Law Journal published the findings in an analysis of federal and state law schools that are known as law schools, which offer courses in a wide variety of fields.
“The average tuition for a law school degree is $40,000 to $48,000,” the paper said.
“But a law graduate who is admitted to a public or private law school can expect to pay between $44,000 or $46,000.”
“The vast majority of graduates will make money at the beginning of their careers,” the authors of the paper wrote.
“In some cases, these graduates can make even more than that.
They may earn up to $60,000 a year.
Law schools have to pay for their own law school tuition and many are forced to borrow money to pay the debt.”
The law school loan rates for students who attended public law schools and who took their undergraduate degrees online can be as high as $60.40 per hour.
But the law school loans are far less for students at traditional law schools.
For example, the average student at a law institution at the national average loan rate of about $40.40 is only paying about $3,500 in interest a year, the paper found.
“While the interest rates are high, the costs are still low,” said Adam B. Smith, the author of the report and an associate professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
“Students may make very little money at these schools, but the costs for these schools are high.”
The paper said that law school costs can vary considerably depending on where students go and the school they attend.
For example, if a student attended a private law college and earned an associate’s degree, the student could expect to earn about $16,000 at a public university.
“But the average law student earning an associate degree in a private school might earn only $5,000 after four years,” Smith said.
“In addition, the law student may not even have a job after four and a half years.”
According to the paper, law schools also may charge fees for students to attend a program that is not the law program’s primary focus, such as for a non-law school degree or to apply to a law program that does not offer a law major, such the master’s.
“If a law student wishes to study a different field, law school programs may be more expensive, but those costs are much lower for a first-time law student than a student who is entering law school after a law college degree,” Smith added.
The law schools are looking to the public to find out more about law school debt.
They hope to get some insight from the research.
Law schools and students have already started taking the lead in getting more information from the public.
In a recent news release, the American Bar Association released data showing that the public is increasingly willing to share information about debt.
“More than half of all Americans now say they are willing to speak with a credit bureaus, credit bursaries or other third-party debt collectors about their debts,” the release said.
Law school debt has become a big issue in recent years, as a number of public schools have been shuttered, or the students who have gone there have graduated.
In February, the New York State Law Enforcement Officers Association urged the Legislature to pass legislation that would make it illegal for students and their families to borrow more than $1,500 from law schools for their undergraduate or graduate degrees.
“We are very concerned that students and families in New York state will be forced to continue to pay higher tuition and higher fees to law schools,” said Mark R. Krikorian, the president of the New Jersey chapter of the Association.
