The University of Cincinnati law school will cut tuition for out-of-state residents by 30 percent, following the lead of another cost-cutting Ohio law school. Tuition and fees for out-of-state residents will drop from $40,044 to $28,536 at the Cincinnati law school next year, the National Law Journal reports. Ohio residents will continue to pay $23,536.
University of Cincinnati law dean Louis Bilionis explained the move to the National Law Journal. “We thought tuition and expenses for out-of-state students had become out of equilibrium with the market,” he said. “The world is telling us that tuition has gotten too high."
Like many other law schools around the country, Cincinnati faces a difficult recruiting climate. A report prepared by Bilionis for the trustees found that the number of new students enrolling at Ohio law schools has dropped by 28 percent since 2008.
