Olivas, Michael A.
Journal of Legal Education, v49 n3 p333-41 Sep 1999
Reviews recent data on cost trends in professional (especially legal) education, including interest costs, repayment mechanisms, and the issue of foregone wages. Also examines placement data and the ability to repay and refinance college indebtedness, as well as the developing relationship among college cost, credit cards, and consumer finance. Finds that financing postbaccalaureate education is an increasing problem. (Author/DB)
