ABA Forms Task Force on Cost of Legal Education

The American Bar Association has formed a new task force charged with examining the cost of a legal education, how law school is financed, what role student loans play and the impact of overall educational debt. The ABA Task Force on the Financing of Legal Education also will consider current practices in the use of merit scholarships, tuition discounting and need-based aid. Members of the task force include Memphis lawyer Lucian Pera, a partner at Adams and Reese and treasurer of the ABA.
