Some Evening Classes Falling Prey to the Recession

Karen Sloan, Law School’s Evening Classes Fall Prey to Recession, The National Law Journal, Oct. 6, 2010, available at http://www.law.com/jsp/nlj/PubArticleNLJ.jsp?id=1202473002210&Law_schools_evening_classes_fall_prey_to_recession&slreturn=1&hbxlogin=1.

Some law schools, including Pace Law School and Hofstra Law School, have had to cut their evening programs.  The schools have reported that the cuts are due to the poor economy and low enrollment.

As the article continues to explain, however, “‘Applications were down only slightly for the part-time evening program at Suffolk University Law School in Boston, but the entering class of nearly 200 is consistent with years past,’ said dean of admissions Gail Ellis. ‘Our program is pretty well entrenched in the university,’ she said. ‘It serves the community, as far as people who work during the day.’ Suffolk was founded in 1906 as an evening law school.”
