Sovern: Could Law School Applicants Hit a 20-Year Low?

Jeff Sovern (St. John's), Could Law School Applicants Hit a 20-Year Low?:

Last month the ABA Journal reported that as of January 13, the total number of applicants at ABA-approved law schools stood at 31,815. Last year, about 48% of applicants had applied by that date.  If that trend holds, the total number of applicants for the year will be about 66,281.  Going back to the 1990-91 application cycle, the smallest number of applicants was 71,500, in 1998-99 (the high was 100,600 in 2004-05).
