Despite the recent decline in demand for legal education, the average tuition rates at law schools this fall will rise by more than double the rate of inflation, according to an analysis of published rates by The National Law Journal. Among private law schools, average tuition will increase by roughly 4 percent over last year, to $40,585, the first time average private-school tuition has surpassed $40,000. At public law schools, students who are state residents will see an average tuition increase of 6 percent. The Law Journal noted that this year’s average increase for private-school tuition is one of the lowest annual percentage increases in 33 years.
