law-Pace-tuitionPace Law School recently unveiled a first-in-the-nation tuition matching program designed to make legal education more accessible to students across the country.The School also announced a tuition freeze for 2015/16 academic year.

The program, which aims to save students tens of thousands of dollars, enables qualified students from throughout the U.S. to enroll at Pace Law at the in-state tuition rate of their home state; allowing those students for whom a legal education in New York might be out of reach.The new tuition matching program will begin with the 2015/16 academic year.

“The affordability of education has become a critical issue, and this program is a unique approach to making a first-rate legal education more accessible to students across the country,” said Pace Law School Dean David Yassky. “Law school enrollment has declined in recent years even as complex legal issues are becoming an increasingly common part of today’s business environment. This initiative will provide a broader population of students with a roadmap for successfully entering the legal field without the crushing weight of unmanageable debt.”
