Financial Aid is available to C|M|LAW students in the forms of scholarships and Federal Loans.
Scholarships are awarded competitively at the time of admission to the law school. In addition, there are limited awards available for upper-level students based on specific criteria such as academic performance and areas of demonstrated interest. All law students should fill out a new Law Aid Application to ensure full scholarship consideration.

The College is notified throughout the year of outside scholarship opportunities and writing competitions. These opportunities will be broadcast to all law students through email and will be posted on the scholarship section of the C|M|LAW website.
Federal Loans available to law students include the Stafford Loan and the Graduate Plus Loan. All students should complete the FAFSA in order to be awarded federal funds. Although loans are a valuable resource in achieving your educational goals, it is important that all students understand the terms and conditions of their loans, regularly review and manage their education loan portfolio, and make every effort to minimize their debt.
