It is about time that a law school saw the light.
Next fall students at the University of Iowa College of Law will be paying less money than they did this fall, thanks in part to declining enrollment.
The Iowa Board of Regents, although increasing undergraduate tuition at the University of Iowa, agreed to lower the tuition for both in state and out of state law students by 16.4%.
This needs to be a trend in law school education nationwide.
The new non-resident tuition will be $39,500, down from $47,200. The new in-state tuition dips to $21,960. Still too high in my estimation, but why look a gift horse in the mouth.
According to one Regent, the goal of tuition cuts is to bring the 1L class size back up. This year, Iowa's 1L class dropped from 155 to 94.
