Strategic Priorities: Priority 2

  • High-Value Education at a Lower Cost 

    We must provide a high-value education at a lower cost, without impacting the actual or perceived value of the education we are providing. We must deliver our product in a cost-effective manner. We must be efficient, market-aware and nimble enough to respond to the changing needs of the workplace.

     In the past decade, tuition among Ohio law schools has increased by as much as 115 percent. This trend is not sustainable. Students already are stretched financially. They graduate with heavy debt loads and weak prospects for obtaining high-paying jobs. If we cannot hold the line on tuition increases, many students will question the advisability of investing in a legal education.
