When I was in law school in the '70s, there was no tuition at the University of California law schools, though we had $1000 a year or so in fees (which could be deferred with 3% interest loans). It was possible to pay for law school entirely with the GI Bill, fee deferral loans, and Summer work. Few of my classmates graduated with significant debt.
