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.
