What, fewer lawyers?

Ashby Jones, WSJ, Mar 12, 2013, says Northwestern is cutting the size of its law school incoming class by 10%.

That means as many as 25 fewer students starting law school there next fall.

Applications are down, too.

Since the meltdown of 2008, 51% of law schools have downsized.

Northwestern said it could have kept class sizes the same and admitted less qualified students.  But that would have affected its top rating.

Tuition at Northwestern is $53,168. Maybe that's part of the problem. They say they are looking for more merit and financial based assistance, but it is hard to come by.

I don't know what all this means. I watch SUITS and THE GOOD WIFE as my source of info.
