INDICE DE GALERIAS
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — With fewer people pursuing careers in law, Minnesota law schools are making difficult choices to deal with the loss in tuition revenue.
A Minneapolis Star Tribune report (http://bit.ly/1eCoTpW ) says some are cutting faculty or staff, while others are admitting larger classes at the risk of a potential drop in national rankings.
Hamline University School of Law has shrunk its class size by more than half since 2010. It also began offering incentives for faculty members to retire early.
The University of Minnesota Law School admitted a small class last year but is looking to enroll more students this year. Dean David Wippman acknowledges the decision could mean a drop in median test scores that factor into rankings.
Law students say tuition increases and questionable job prospects have made law school less appealing.
