Law Schools Are Trying to Make Up for Lost Income Caused by Declining Applications

More law schools offering master’s degrees.

The National Law Journal reports that Emery University School of Law “is among nearly 30 law schools that have or soon will offer a master’s degree for nonlawyers, up from just a handful two years ago, according to the school’s director of graduate programs, Lynn Labuda. The programs differ slightly in name, structure and cost, but they generally are marketed to working professionals. While the movement remains in its early stages, to administrators across the country it represents a promising counterpoint to waning interest in the traditional three-year J.D. degree.” The Journal adds, “First-year enrollment at law schools was down by 15 percent nationally this fall, compared with two years ago, according to the American Bar Association, and it’s unlikely that decline will taper off anytime soon. The number of people applying to ABA-accredited law schools is down by 16 percent.”

From the American Association for Justice news release.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
