Beyond The Rankings

  • Your Nebraska Law curriculum is flexible and allows you to customize your education to your interests and goals so you can solve the problems that matter to you and your community.
  • Fewer students provide more opportunities for you to receive personal attention. You’ll develop leadership skills by getting involved in student organizations, competition teams, and honorary memberships. Students thrive in our supportive and collaborative culture and have more chance to step into leadership roles.
  • Gain practical experience and prepare yourself for a lifetime of learning, service and ethical leadership. Work on real cases in one of our nine legal clinics during your third year of law school.

Quality+Low Cost = Opportunity

Nebraska Law has one of the lowest in-state tuitions of the top 100 law schools and is consistently listed in National Jurist’s top ten as a Best Value Law School.

Federal financial aid as well as academic and opportunity scholarships are available to help support eligible students. The result is students who graduate with less student loan debt. 

According to Forbes, the Nebraska Law class of 2019 had the lowest median debt in the nation. Less debt allows greater opportunity to choose a position you want after graduation rather than feeling pressured to take the highest-paying job based in order to service your student loans.
