Re: No Accreditation

by George Leef

Here is a December 17 New York Times piece on the same controversy.

School officials say that if it weren’t for ABA standards that impose high costs but create to little or no benefit (such as keeping copies of books that few if any students use, and that are available through other means if they are needed), the school could lower its tuition by half of more. My friend Andy Morriss, a law prof at the University of Alabama who has a deep understanding of law and economics, contributes an excellent observation about how the needlessly high cost of getting through law school reduces the number of lawyers who will take cases from clients who can’t pay high fees.
