Sources of Financial Aid

While Lincoln is a fraction of the cost of most law schools in the Bay Area, we understand you may still need a little extra help to pay for your education here.  We also know that loans can be confusing, and choosing the right payment option for your personal circumstances isn’t easy.  However, a professional degree will change your life in ways you cannot imagine.  So why not let us help you figure out how to get started?  Your questions are welcome here.  Please email [email protected].

Apprenticeships & Internships

At Lincoln, we are committed to you receiving at least 15 units of practical training during your time at Lincoln. That means you might work in our Clinic, at an internship of your choosing, or in an apprenticeship with one of our local law firm and in-house counsel partners. You’ll be practicing the law while you are learning it.

Flexible Class Schedules

Lincoln was created as a four-year part-time program with students completing approximately 22 units each year. But we understand that sometimes life can get in the way. So if you need to adjust that schedule for work, or family, or financial reasons, you’ve got up to seven years to complete your JD degree. So it’s ok to take a leave, or slow it down, while you catch up elsewhere.

Payment Plans

Some students opt for a payment plan secured directly through their school. For the average cost of private preschool education in Silicon Valley, a student may attend law school at Lincoln on a traditional payment plan.
