Tuition and Aid

Legal Education at a Price That Makes Sense

Tuition is charged at the per credit rate of $838.  The average tuition for a full-time student is $24,022 per year and $18,017 per year for a part-time student.  Tuition for the entire program, 3-years full-time or 4-years part-time, is $72,068.  This is in alignment with our goal to eliminate traditional barriers to legal education, the cost of attendance for Wilmington University School of Law is considerably less than that of other law schools.

A More Affordable Law School

How can WilmU Law provide an engaging and rewarding legal education experience at a lower cost than other law schools? Many factors combine to work in favor of our affordability.

Support from Wilmington University

Tuition paid by WilmU Law students stays within the law school and does not support central university operations.  In fact, the University has committed significant resources to ensure the success of its law school. 

Faculty Teaching

Our faculty are focused on teaching. At many law schools, faculty members teach two to four classes each year. WilmU Law faculty teach four to five classes each year.

Electives Taught by Adjuncts

Our elective courses are primarily taught by practicing attorneys as adjunct professors. This allows our full-time faculty members to focus on teaching required courses.

Required Curriculum

The first two years at WilmU Law consist of required courses. This streamlines the scheduling process and allows our faculty to focus on these courses. This structure guarantees our students access to all bar-tested subjects.

Focus on Externships

Externships provide law students with many benefits beyond working on a case. These include future employment opportunities, engagement with mentors within the legal community, and the experience of working in a real law firm with the demands of handling multiple clients. Our externship model is supervised by a dedicated staff member who is admitted to the bar, as opposed to a full-time faculty member who is supervising externships as part of their teaching load.

State-of-the-Art Law Library

We are building a law library for the 21st century. The vast majority of resources are available to students electronically. This reduces funds spent on acquiring and managing print materials.
