Law schools provide a well-rounded education designed to train people to become attorneys. As a general rule, state-run schools provide the lowest tuition to students who reside in the state. A variety of law schools are less expensive than others while still providing a quality education.

University of the District of Columbia

The David A. Clarke School of Law at the University of the District of Columbia is one of the least expensive law programs located in a major city. It is a historically black college with the goal of recruiting and enrolling students from under-represented racial groups. Students provide community service and the program emphasises clinical practice. As of 2009, its instate tuition was £4,777 and its out-of-state tuition was £9,555.

CUNY-Queens College

The City University of New York, Queens College is one of the leading public service law schools in the United States. It was founded in 1983 and is often ranked among the top law schools in the country for clinical training. All third-year law students represent clients under the supervision of attorneys at a large public interest law organisation. As of 2009, its instate tuition was £6,897 while its out-of-state tuition was £10,732.

Brigham Young University

The Clark College of Law at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, is the least expensive private school with annual tuition at just £6,487 in 2009 for those of the Mormon faith. It is unique in that the school's ownership, its honour code and its values are all governed by the Mormon faith and the law program emphasises Mormon values. It is a top-ranked school with small class sizes. The school charges £12,974 for those not of the Mormon faith, as of 2009, making it still less expensive than nearly all of its peer-ranked schools.
