University of Akron School of Law is another school taking aggressive measures to control tuition costs
To follow up on some earlier posts by my blogging colleague Professor Sirico (here and here) you can add the University of Akron School of Law to the growing list of schools that are taking aggressive measures to control the spirally cost of obtaining a J.D. In particular, Akron has frozen tuition for the entering classes of 2013 and 2014 nor will it increase tuition for those classes throughout their years at the school. The school has also eliminated the nonresident tuition surcharge to a minimal $50 per semester (apparently a surcharge is required under Ohio law). This move reportedly saves entering out-of-state students approximately $12,000 annually (if they are full-time students) from the 2012-13 tuition charged to non-residents.
