High cost of legal education

By February 2, 2006Uncategorized

I graduated from law school in 1985, which doesn’t seem that long ago.  Apparently, it was though.  And it appears that the cost of a legal education has risen at least 267% since then.  About 80 percent of law school students obtain loans to pay for law school, and the average loan debt is $76,763 for private law school graduates and $48,910 for public school graduates.

No wonder the legal system is so expensive.

P.S. If you appreciate these kinds of observations, you might want to read this as well.
