The exorbitant tuition fees in the top law schools of the US deter a large number of students from joining the graduate programs in law in these prestigious universities. The average annual tuition fee in a highly-rated American law school is around $60,000. Nevertheless, there are a number of recognized law schools whose tuition fees are affordable. For in-state students, the annual tuition fee of some of the US law schools is less than $10,000, whereas out-of state and international students can study law by spending less than $20,000 per year. Among the affordable law schools of USA, the law school of the City University of New York is considered the best, especially in the field of public interest law.
