The American Bar Association reported that law school enrollment has dropped 9% from 2011 and 15% from 2010.
According to a National Jurist article, some law schools had planned to reduce enrollment, but the ABA report confirms that even those that expected a drop, experienced a more severe drop than planned or expected, some by more than 10%.
Final findings show 149 law schools decreased in enrollment and 48 increased. Four schools increased enrollment by more than 10%.
A more extensive report is expected in the spring.
