WSJ: Tuition Reduction Success Story

The Wall Street Journal profiled RWU Law as one of "a handful of U.S. law schools" that successfully boosted enrollment in a down economy by reducing tuition.

From the Wall treet Journal: "Law Schools Boost Enrollment After Price Cuts," by Jennifer Smith

RWU LawSept. 2, 2014:  A strategy rarely employed in legal education — price-cutting — appears to be paying off for a handful of U.S. law schools.

Three institutions that trimmed tuition for some or all students are set to boost their first-year class sizes by 22% to 52% this fall compared with 2013, according to an analysis of preliminary enrollment data by The Wall Street Journal. […]

First-year enrollment increased by 28% at Roger Williams University School of Law in Rhode Island after a tuition reduction, and by 22% at the University of La Verne College of Law in California. […]

At Roger Williams University School of Law, returning students can keep their existing aid and pay the old tuition rate of $41,400, or waive the award and pay $33,792 under the new model. "Many current students are paying less than they did previously," a spokeswoman said, "and nobody is paying more."
