IMAGINING the No-Frills Law School. “I present a model of an ABA-accredited, university-based private law school covering all its costs at the $20,000-per-year tuition level. . . . So here are some questions about the 1957 Law School. Do the economics work? Would you send your kid to this school? More generally, is the model attractive to a sufficient number of qualified students who are likely to pass the bar so that 1957 Law School could attract a class? As a competitive matter, is the price sufficiently low, considering the discounting practices of competitors? Would enough potential employers give the 1957 Law School students a chance?”

As I noted at my SEALS panel on the future of legal education, the Kingsfield approach has the advantage of being very cheap.
