Law School Applications Decline Again

From Catherine Ho, Washington Post:

The number of people applying to U.S. law schools dropped nationwide for the third year in a row, prompting some law schools to slash the size of their entering classes.

As of May 17, about 55,760 people had applied to American Bar Association-accredited law schools for the 2013-14 school year — down 13.4 percent from 2012, according to data compiled by the Law School Admission Council.

The story goes on to describe cuts in applications or enrollment at Georgetown, George Washington and other schools.
