Cleveland State University’s Cleveland Marshall College of Law has received national recognition for its innovative efforts to provide high quality and affordable legal education. It has been named one of the most affordable law schools in America in a new study by Student Loan Hero. The ranking assessed and compared the average student debt and average salary of recent graduates at law schools throughout the United States to assess the overall “value” of the legal education received. C|M|LAW ranked 31st overall and 15th for average student debt.
“It’s no wonder the phrase ‘choose wisely’ comes to mind when deciding which law school to attend,” Student Loan Hero said in a press release on the rankings. “After all, it can mean the difference between a balance of $144,000 upon graduation – or law school debt that’s just half of that.”
“We are extremely honored to be included in this ranking,” added Lee Fisher, Dean of C|M|LAW. “We are proud to be a law school of both quality and opportunity. We are committed to providing excellent legal training at a reasonable expense, and feature numerous initiatives that help students reduce costs and insure that they are career ready upon graduation.”
