Summary: In order to bring in more Texas residents, Texas A&M University Law School is lowering their in-state tuition.

With the overwhelming debt loads students are facing upon graduation from law school, one Texas law school has decided to be the nice guy and lower their tuition rates. Texas A&M University School of Law will drop tuition for Texas residents to $28,000, a 15 percent drop.

For non-Texas residents tuition still remains at $33,092 and will not be changing. The price change will take effect for new and current students next fall and will be locked in for four academic years upon enrollment date.

Texas A&M acquired the private law school, Texas Wesleyan University School of Law, three years ago. The practice of public law schools offering lower tuition rates for in-state residents is nothing new, but now Texas A&M will be joining the trend, making the school even more enticing for Texas residents.

The median in-state tuition for public law schools accredited by the American Bar Association was $22,209 in 2013, whereas out-of-state tuition was at $33,752. A growing trend in law schools has been to drop tuition in an effort to bring more students in including, Wayne State University, Penn State, and the University of Arizona. For some schools, their enrollment numbers have increased because of this.

Law professor at Texas A&M Law, Milan Markovic, said, “We want our students to be able to have less difficulty obtaining the full value from their law degrees.” Class sizes had shrunk at the law school since it became public with only 133 first-year students in 2015 compared to 243 in 2013.
