University of Alabama School of Law

Alabama Law is a “Best Value” law school according to the National Jurist. This year, tuition is $21,320 for Alabama residents and $36,000 for nonresidents. Also, the cost of living in Tuscaloosa is very reasonable. 91% of our Class of 2013 were employed in J.D. required or preferred positions or pursuing advanced degrees within 9 months of graduation. Alabama is one of the few law schools in the country that guarantees every student the opportunity to participate in at least one law clinic before graduating. Our program offers the following clinics: Domestic Violence, Criminal Defense, Elder Law, Civil Law, Community Development, Foreclosure Relief, and Mediation Law. In 2012, the Clinical Legal Education Association awarded our clinical program with the 2012 Award for Excellence.
