Summary: Brooklyn Law School is offering to repay students who fail to secure a job.

With the legal market bottomed out and only slowly nosing up, ever since the market crash of 2008, which was felt in full by 2010 at law schools, law school education remains student-centered. Enrollment is at an all-time low while the number of law schools is at an all time high. Of course these schools, to avoid closing, are doing what they can to attract students.

While many schools are financing fellowships, Brooklyn Law School has gone a different route. They are offering a program called Bridge to Success which offers to repay 15 percent of tuition if students fail to secure a full-time job nine months after graduating.

“This builds on the overall approach that we’ve taken to be very student-centric, to listen to what students need,” said Nicholas W. Allard, dean of Brooklyn Law School.

This, combined with their recent lowering of tuition by 15 percent, down to $43,237, is intended, of course, to make the school more attractive to prospective students. The dean explains that it is to give students the freedom to be selective in the job they choose, so they don’t have to cling to the first offer they run across.

“It’s really recognition that the one size fits all of conventional legal education is no longer going to work or should be working.”

Be that as it may, it is a selling point, of sorts, and one on a different trajectory than school ranking.
