Law School Debt by the Numbers
April 18 (Bloomberg Law) — Just how onerous is the debt load for law students? Consider the graduates of San Diego’s California Western School of Law. They have an average of more than $153,000 in loans, the biggest debt load of any law school in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report. While Cal Western tops the charts, it’s hardly the only law school where graduates are saddled with massive debt. The average law student nationwide leaves school owing more than $100,000.
