UA law school cutting tuition as enrollment drops

Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Tuition for law school students at the University of Arizona is going down.

The school is reducing tuition by about 11% for in-state students and by 8% for nonresidents. The change comes as the school faces a 13.5% drop in first-year students and a decrease of more than one-third in the number of applicants since 2005.

Officials say lowering tuition is part of a plan to help students manage law school costs.

About 80% of law students receive financial aid from the college. That's a higher percentage than most other law schools.

UA law school spokeswoman Nancy Stanley says the high price of law degrees is one factor driving enrollment declines at many schools nationwide.

Arizona State University says it's freezing tuition for its law students this year.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
