Tuition for the one-year LLM in U.S. Law program, prior to any scholarship assistance, is $28,950 (USD). Students also pay an annual student fee of $384 for university services and should anticipate spending about $1,500 for books and supplies.

The cost of living in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky is less than the national average for the United States.
