Could Law School Applications Hit a 20-Year Low?

Jeff Sovern see this possibility based on applications so far.  He states, "But if the current trend holds, we may see law schools competing more fiercely than usual to fill their classes.  Because there are more law schools than there were back in 1999, with more seats to fill, law schools may admit more applicants with weak credentials.  Alternatively, law schools may shrink their classes. Probably we will see both reductions in class sizes and law schools going more deeply into the applicant pool."

It will be really interesting to see how law schools handle this if the trend continues.
