An uncertain jobs market for new attorneys has taken its toll on law school enrollment across the country, but some programs, including the University of Iowa, are reeling more than others.
According to a new study by The National Jurist, 18 schools saw enrollment fall by more than 30 percent. At the University of Iowa College of Law, enrollment fell 28 percent from 2010-2011 to 2013-2014.
Only 16 law schools saw enrollment increase over that period. The University of Nebraska College of Law and the Creighton University School of Law were not among them.
Law school enrollment fell 16.1 percent at Creighton and was down 6 percent at the University of Nebraska.
The largest enrollment decline was at the University of La Verne College of Law in Ontario, Calif. Enrollment fell 66.2 percent between the 2010-2011 and 2013-2014 terms.
