How to Make Law School Affordable

Former Senior Director

Professor Brian Tamanaha, who authored Failing Law Schools, penned an op-ed for the New York Times on the debt and joblessness of recent law school graduates and points to two culprits: American Bar Association accreditation standards and the federal loan system. 

Susan Poser, Dean of the University of Nebraska College of Law, responded with a letter to the editor that faults U.S. News & World Report for a ranking system that is inherently biased.

Tamanaha talks more about Failing Law Schools in this video.
