Financing Your Legal Education

Legal education is becoming significantly more expensive in Canada. Many law schools charge a differential fee. Tuition costs at Canadian law schools in 2017–2018 are expected to be between $7,000 and $28,000 per year. Depending upon the location of the school and the student’s lifestyle, housing and other living expenses may add an additional $10,000 to $20,000 per academic year.

Financial assistance is available. Federal government-sponsored loan programs provide most of the funds. Canadian students and landed immigrants may apply in their home provinces for loans under the Canada Student Loans Program. Most provinces also provide nonrepayable bursaries or provincial loans; however, these rarely cover all educational expenses. Most Canadian law schools also award a limited number of scholarships and bursaries.
