    This panel discussion will address financial challenges (and possible opportunities) facing every law school. Since the recession a decade ago, the financial impact on law schools has been significant. The challenges have included fewer applicants, fewer lawyer jobs, lower job placement rates, lower net tuition revenue, and increasing costs. This panel will address key areas including financial sustainability (What does a long-term budget plan look like? What are new ideas to control costs?), high tuition discounting (How long can this continue? What is the real cost of law school today?), economic cycles (What could be the financial impact of the next recession? Can we even prepare? Law student applications are up—is the growth here to stay, or is it a temporary Trump bump?), and law school relevance (What are the latest ideas for adding value and/or creating new sources of revenue?).
    Business meeting at program conclusion.
