Applicants Down; Arizona to Cut Law School Tuition

The University of Arizona’s law school plans to drop tuition by 11 percent for in-state students and eight percent for out-of-state students, the ABA Journal reports. According to the National Law Journal, the move appears to be the first significant drop in law school tuition since the application totals began to decline in 2011. Since 2005, Arizona has had a 36 percent decrease in applicants. The school plans to reduce the amount of scholarship money available and offset lost revenue by expanding its master of laws and doctor of juridical science programs and offering a new LL.M for nonlawyers.
