Columbia law's total educational costs: 51,185 (this includes books).

Source: http://www.law.columbia.edu/current_stu ... st_billing

Berkeley:
"For nonresident students, total nonresident fees will be $52,220 for the 2010-2011 academic year. During the 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years, the proposed nonresident fees will be $54,830 and $57,573 respectively." (it is unclear whether this includes books).

52,220 is more than Northwestern by 2500 dollars. We'll see if CLS and NYU cross the 50K line. I bet they do, but 53K would be a fairly big jump for them.

Word. I just picked Columbia as a counterpoint, because it's the school I'm obsessing over at the moment. It's safe to say that Berkeley is more expensive than just about the entire T14, public or private.

Yes, but "total resident fees for Berkeley Law students during the 2010-11 academic year will be $44,220 and the estimated total resident fees for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years will be $49,347 and $51,815 respectively." After the first year, I think just about everyone (or every U.S. citizen) becomes a CA resident. I know the first year projected price differential for 2011 and 2012 is hard to swallow, but I'm pretty sure fees everywhere else will also increase - although I haven't seen projections for any other top law schools. Furthermore, CA residents at Boalt will be paying slightly more in tuition in 3 years than Columbia students are paying now.

I'm not trying to convince anyone here that Boalt's tuition is dirt cheap. I just think that the tuition numbers being tossed around here are slightly exaggerated. Boalt is not going through a financial crises. We are improving our facilities, building a new library, and expanding our faculty. Our tuition will go up, but I think our administration is committed to keeping it lower than that at our peer law schools.

I'm a Boalt student, so I'm biased. Please take what I say with a grain of salt. Have a nice day.

In state, but out of state it will be the most expensive. And the numbers aren't exaggerated they are from Boalt's website.
