When you say, "get from the government" I suppose you mean federal financial aid. Graduate students aren't eligible for grant money, like in undergrad. Almost all get the guaranteed $18,500 in loan money, and many get other federal loans that are based on need. Some get work-study money also. Of course, there are private loans available as well. Basically, if it's not a loan, or work-study money, then it's not from the government. Of course, law schools give out scholarships based on need and merit.
