Law Schools Begin Furloughing Employees View Count: 28

The National Law Journal reports that public universities and law schools are making their faculty and staff take unpaid time off to save money.

Public universities have begun furloughing employees in an effort to reduce costs, and law schools aren’t exempt from the unpaid leave policies. For example, Arizona State University has implemented a university-wide furlough program that applies to the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. The move is expected to save the university about $24 million at a time when the Arizona lawmakers are looking at significant cuts to state university funding…

“It’s had absolutely no impact on students,” said Karen Rothenberg, dean of the University of Maryland School of Law. “Faculty aren’t in the classroom eight hours a day, five days a week. The furlough is flexible, and staff and faculty can take the time when it works…”

“Employees have been very supportive,” Rothenberg said. “It’s been incredibly gratifying that the academic community has been so positive about the plan.”
