With the possible exception of employment law, the legal profession has been hit hard by the recession. Today’s law school graduates are now competing with cadres of laid-off attorneys for dwindling positions.
So, Loyola University Chicago School of Law has devised a way for law students to weather the economic storm: Encourage them to stay in school by offering master of laws degrees on the cheap.
Normally, a Loyola Master of Laws degree costs $36,000. But graduating law students can now go for advanced degrees specializing in child and family law, health law, business and corporate governance law or tax law for the low, low price of just $9,500 for each of the two required semesters. That’s almost half off!
But wait! There’s more! Another option allows Loyola law grads to enroll in any class they like for a flat $4,000 per semester.
