At What Point Do Public Law School Fees Make Them No Longer "Public" Law Schools?
Public law schools are supposed to be "cheaper," at least for residents, but Berkeley's fee schedule has led Chicago law prof Brian Leiter questions whether Berkeley is still a "public" law school. From Leiter's blog post:
[T]otal resident fees for Berkeley Law students during the 2010-11 academic year will be $44,220 and the estimated total resident fees for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years will be $49,347 and $51,815 respectively.
For nonresident students, total nonresident fees will be $52,220 for the 2010-2011 academic year. During the 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years, the proposed nonresident fees will be $54,830 and $57,573 respectively.
The other UC law schools are pricey, too -- UC Davis Law School's fees cost $41,605.
