Enrollment at Law Schools Continues to Decline

Law schools across the country have been tackling the issue of a steep decline in applications and thus enrollment numbers. With lower numbers, revenues are taking a hit so schools have to result in other options to make up for the lost money.

Nicole Niemi, the university spokeswoman, said of the school, “To put the law school and our students in the best position to succeed, we are taking steps to meet the challenges facing legal education.” She explained that the buyouts are supposed to align the size of the faculty with enrollment numbers, “Valparaiso University and its board are fully committed to the future of the Law School and are taking this step to ensure its future success.”
