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.
