Western New England University School of Law Enrollment Down

Western New England University School of Law is one of the 18 schools where enrollment has dropped by 30 percent or more, plummeting to 33.3 percent since the 2010-2011 academic year. Western New England University is a private university in Springfield, Massachusetts. Biz Journals has reported that only Harvard Law saw an increase of 0.5 percent in enrollment since the 2010-2011 academic years.

According to a new study by The National Jurist, the drop in law school applications during the past three years has had a profound impact on enrollment. Eighteen law schools saw enrollment drop by more than 30 percent, led by University of La Verne (down 66.2 percent) , Thomas M. Cooley Law School (down 40.6 percent), and New York Law School ( down 38.7percent ), according to Above The Law.

“Our School of Law, like most law schools nationwide, has experienced a drop in enrollment since interest in legal education hit a historic high in 2010. As a relatively small law school that prides itself on a unique blend of professional education and personal attention, every increase or decrease tends to be magnified when presented in percentage terms. The data largely reflect a regional and national trend,” a spokesman for Western New England University, David Stawasz, wrote in a prepared statement.

Law school enrollment has dropped by an average of 99 students per school from 2010-2011 to 2013-2014, with only 16 schools seeing an increase in students.

Standard & Poor’s released a report showing that the sad state of the legal industry is crushing stand-alone law schools which are not attached to larger universities. According to the S&P report, big law schools like Yale, Harvard, or Emory have access to resources of a large university and “substantial endowments.”

The National Jurist used numbers from the ABA Official Guide to Law Schools and compared those with the enrollment data that the ABA requires law schools to post on their websites.
