High Costs and Misdemeanors
Graglia, Lino A.
Academic Questions, v24 n2 p181-184 Jun 2011
When the author entered Columbia Law School in 1951, first-year tuition was $600--$5082.07 in today's money (according to the U.S. Department of Labor's CPI inflation calculator). Today (with some additional compulsory payments) it is over $50,000. How could this have happened? Law schools were once noted for providing inexpensive education, what with large classes and no need for labs or equipment. In this article, the author offers some thoughts on how law school costs skyrocketed--and kept going. (Contains 6 footnotes.)
