Tuition & Fees
Since 1969, our aim has been to deliver an affordable, high-quality legal education.
That's why our tuition is substantially below that charged at the majority of law schools accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of The State Bar of California. When you consider the professional success of our graduates, our reasonable tuition makes a strong case for choosing the Colleges of Law.
Juris Doctor Tuition & Fees
Tuition for J.D. students entering in Fall 2013 will pay a Locked-In Tuition rate of $640 per academic semester unit. This covers tuition, technology, a bar review course and certain fees (materials, SBA and graduation fees), but does not cover the cost of textbooks. At that rate, the cost for the entire J.D. degree at the Colleges of Law is $53,760 ($640 per unit X 84 units).
