Scholarship Information

LL.M.-LI Students

All LL.M.-LI applicants are considered for a scholarship and no additional application or essay is required.

Most students receive at least a partial tuition scholarship and highly qualified students may receive awards covering at least half their tuition cost. Exceptional applicants may qualify for a full tuition scholarship.

Outstanding academic performance, prior work experience, and enhancing the diversity of our LL.M.-LI class are all highly valued when considering scholarship awards.

Applicants are notified of a scholarship via email at the time they are admitted.

LL.M. & S.J.D. Students

Applicants are encouraged to seek funding and financial aid from additional sources.

The University of Wisconsin Law School has some financial aid available to LL.M. & S.J.D. students. Requests for financial aid can be made on the LL.M./S.J.D. application when applying.

Applicants will be notified if they are to receive financial aid via email, shortly after they are admitted.
