The Cost Of a Law Degree

I can’t speak to the merits of the program Michael Coyne is advocating for as the solution here, but surely this is a problem:

Tuition costs at law schools accredited by the American Bar Association have doubled in the past nine years; total inflation during that same period was less than 25%.

This is, however, increasingly what we’re finding in all aspects of the higher education system. Annie Lowrey wrote a month ago that in the law school sub-element of this, we’re finally seeing applications to law school decline in response to the increasingly bleak value proposition law schools have to offer.
