Law School's 15% Refund to Grads Who Can't Find Jobs

July 13, 2015

Brooklyn Law School is starting a new program in which it will offer a 15 percent refund on tuition to those who can't find a job nine months after graduation, The New York Times reported. The offer applies only to tuition paid, not to grants the students have received. The move comes at a time of national declines in law school enrollments amid a shrinking legal job market. Some law schools have responded by reducing enrollment and/or tuition. Last year, Brooklyn Law School cut tuition by 15 percent, to $43,237. To be eligible for the new program, students must take the bar exam after they graduate (though they need not pass), show that they are engaged in an active job search and use the law school's career search services.
