KU, Mizzou Competing For Law Students

Associated Press - February 17, 2014 10:15 am

The University of Missouri-Kansas City and the University of Kansas are competing for law school students.

Missouri-Kansas City’s law school has provided in-state undergraduate tuition for most Kansas residents for four years. Now, the KU School of Law is responding.

The Kansas school will use a new scholarship program to allow residents of 11 Missouri counties to pay the equivalent of in-state tuition – $19,623 a year instead of $33,067 for out-of-state students.

Missouri-Kansas City’s law school does not formally waive out-of-state tuition but nearly all of those students get in-state tuition rates.

The competition is partly because fewer students are enrolling in law schools. 68 percent of schools accredited by the American Bar Association reported lower first-year enrollment in 2013.
