Former State Bar of Michigan president, American Bar Association president, Michigan Supreme Court justice and Detroit mayor Dennis Archer will head up the newly appointed ABA Task Force on Financing a Legal Education.
In a story on MLive, Brian Smith reports that the task force will make recommendations on how law schools can control the rising cost of attending law school.
"As law school tuitions and educational debt loads increase at the same time employment opportunities for recent graduates are constrained, the ABA needs to lead a thorough examination of the financing of legal education and law schools,” Silkenat said.
MLive created a searchable database of information on employment after graduation from Michigan's five law schools. Scroll to the bottom of the story to utilize it.
