Exceptional Value

Exceptional Value

Because going to any law school is a daunting financial decision, it cannot be made lightly. We urge prospective students to consider that the cost of going to law school is a function of at least three key factors: (1) the entry price (retail tuition less scholarships); (2) the ability to work during law school; and (3) good, permanent employment opportunities after law school. At UHLC, we are proud of our successes in delivering excellent, affordable education by helping students as much as possible at all three of these stages: our goal is that every one of our students ends up with a law degree without the burden of unmanageable debt. There are many ways to measure our success in reaching this goal. Here’s one to consider: In 2013 the National Law Journal reported that UHLC was in the top 30 law schools in the country for recent graduates who had been hired by the nation’s 250 largest law firms. Even more importantly, when one considers our big firm placement against the cost of tuition, we really stand out as an exceptional educational value: No other law school in the country has a lower tuition and better placement rate with the top 250 law firms. Of course, we are just as proud of our employment rates for the entire class, which as we’ve pointed out, are among the best in the country.
