The Law School Tuition Bubble Data: Tuition Increases Law School-by-Law School from 2005 to 2011

*****ATTENTION: THOSE WHO FIND THIS POST VIA A LINK SHOULD READ THE TAB AT THE TOP OF THE BLOG FOR MORE RECENT UPDATES*****

[You really should read Part 1 before slogging through these data.]

So folks, here’s a big page of data. If the tables are going off the column, I find hitting “CTRL +” once or twice corrects it. I’ll improve on this page over time, and it’s stickied so you’ll have to click it to see the tables. You do know which state every law school is in, don’t you?

My conclusions can be found in Part 3. You can find the private law school tuition projections here.

Rutgers Camden’s website is outdated and/or misleading. I multiplied the $1,333 Non- Resident tuition by 30, but no information on resident tuition exists.

Puerto Rico

(1. Puerto Rico’s GDP Purchasing Power Parity Per Capita (puh-puh-puh-puh) is about half that of any individual U.S. state, so any Puerto Ricans attending these law schools are effectively paying double what other law students are paying.

2. My background is in East Asian languages, not Romance languages, but I was able to find the “cóstas” on some of these law schools’ websites before they crashed my browser.)

BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL – Private – 1973

(BYU is weird because it’s private but charges based on whether students are LDS. It appears U.S. News reports the Non-LDS tuition. It’s hard to predict where tuition will go because the Church of Latter-day Saints pays 50% of the law school’s operating costs. Thus, predictions should be taken more lightly than with other private law schools.)

  1. This is amazing. Every now and then I look up a tuition to some place and I’ve noticed how hard they can be to find and figure out. And places like LSN are often outdated. Will definitely be bookmarking and I hope people looking at law school find their way to check out the rate of increase at their prospective schools.

  2. Thank you for compiling this chart, Matt. I will make a link to this on my blog. One can clearly see where some schools have more than doubled tuition in the span of 7 years.

    It is apparent that the administrators are aware that this gravy train will be coming to an end. They are now simply trying to milk the system for as much as they can.

    Will Meyerhofer makes a good point as to why a TTTT can charge almost as much as Harvard or Stanford – because students are not physically earning and then handing over these IMMENSE amounts.

  3. Excellent work. I’m sure it must have taken a large amount of effort to compile and publish all of that data. I hope you won’t mind if I refer to some of the data from time to time and perhaps calculate derivative data based on it.

    It’s too bad that there isn’t a good way to numerically quantify the monetary value of having a law degree. If we could do that and plot it over time, I’m sure it would decrease precipitously as the cost of tuition increases.

    • Frank, I think you do great work, so by all means please use what I produced. It took me a month to compile all of this so I want it to go around.

  4. Not to be unnecessarily picky, but you have Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis and Indiana University School of Law Maurer (which is actually Bloomington) backwards. I only know because I went to both schools.

    Otherwise, great job! I can’t believe how much tuition has increased at my school. I only graduated a few years ago, but the current tuition would have prevented me from attending.

  5. Thank you for compiling these figures in a database. In a perfect world, these graphs would be published and disseminated on all law school websites.
