Law School
Personal Finance


The Frugal Law Student is for anyone trying to mitigate their crippling debt. Me? I’m trying to mitigate the tens of thousands of dollars I’ve taken on in student loans. Join me on my quest to avoid taking on more debt, paying off some of the debt I have, and trying to survive law school while doing it.

Who is this Frugal Law Student Character?

My name is Brett McKay and I am second year law student at the University of Tulsa College of Law. In October 2006, I was in the middle of my first semester of law school when it suddenly hit me how much debt I was piling on. I started scouring the Internet for anything to help students with their finances. Noticing a lack of resources for personal finance information for students, I decided to start The Frugal Law Student and share with others what I’ve learned about saving money and taking care of finances while in school.

The Blog

The Frugal Law Student is my attempt to explain personal finance from the perspective of a twenty-something law student. However, my articles are just as relevant to non-twenty something, non-law students.

My intent is to post a few articles each week on frugality and personal finance. In addition, I will write articles on how how to succeed in law school, how to be more productive in our lives, and how to excel in our careers.

I don’t claim to be an expert in these areas. In fact, I’m learning right along with everyone else. I’m just a guy sharing what has and has not worked for me.

    First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you
    center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Appreciate it!

    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has
    some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
