The board of directors for the Fall River Chamber of Commerce and Industry voted to endorse Southern New England School of Law’s plan of creating Massachusetts’s first public law school. Southern New England is donating “real estate, facility, technology and library assets to the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth” in order to create the public law school. Students attending private law schools in Massachusetts pay nearly double the amount than those who attend public law schools. When graduating, students’, who attend private institutions, loans exceed $160,000. UMass-Dartmouth law school will charge only $24,000 per year and additionally, plans to provide fellowships, cutting tuition in half. “The UMass incentive program offers an innovative solution to the high cost of a legal education in Massachusetts . . . .”
