By Jonathan LandayHarvard law professor Jonathan Landai is not an economist, but he is an economist.
His recent book, “The Cost of a Harvard Law Degree,” details why.
The book is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
His argument is simple.
Law students are often overpaid, and that is largely because law schools tend to take a big bite out of the student experience, he said.
Landai’s argument is in line with what is happening at other universities, but it has a twist.
In contrast to many of his peers, he sees Harvard as an important, and therefore cheap, option for students who want to go to law school.
And Landai thinks the price is justified.
Harvard Law School charges $30,000 for the full-time year, compared with $60,000 at the nation’s top law schools, including Stanford, Yale, and Harvard.
The cheapest law school, in terms of dollars, is the University of Pennsylvania at Penn, where students pay $50,000, Landai said.
The lowest-priced law school is the law school at the University Of California at Berkeley, which costs $25,000 per year.
Landay said he sees the price of law school as a “critical question” for the next generation of law students.
That means he is willing to pay $30 or $40,000 more than the price tag to go there.
He said it is not only a matter of cost, but also of convenience.
In some areas, such as medical school, the cost of a law degree is cheaper than attending a four-year university.
But the value of a four year law degree varies dramatically, depending on a number of factors, Landay told National Review.
Law schools, Landais said, are more expensive for some students than others.
Some schools are “pretty good” at the value proposition of a JD, he added.
Landais believes that as the economy improves, law school enrollment will grow, and costs will fall.
“The cost of the law degree, if it is a good quality, should be fairly affordable,” Landais wrote.
Landays reasoning is supported by a study of law schools that Landai co-authored with his colleague Mark Zandi, the Harvard School of Law’s deputy dean of admissions.
The two co-wrote the study, which they published in the Journal of Admissions.
They found that, in some areas of the country, law schools were more expensive than law schools at other law schools.
The study found that in states that offer a law school degree, the median price of a full-year JD degree is $62,500, and the median cost of law degree courses is $36,000.
In states that do not offer a JD degree, median JD prices range from $46,000 to $63,000 and the JD cost ranges from $34,000 all the way up to $92,000 in the state of Virginia.
In the same state, median cost per year for JD degree courses ranges from less than $3,000 up to more than $20,000 across the board.
The authors also found that for students seeking a JD in the U.S., the cost per JD degree ranged from $5,000 or less to more $17,000 depending on the area.
For students seeking law school in Australia, they found that the median JD cost per student was $9,000 with a median JD course cost of $27,000 (for a total of $46.7 million).
For students from other countries, they noted that the average JD costs range from around $6,000 on the high end to around $20 for the lowest end of the spectrum.
While the costs vary, it is important to recognize that law schools are among the most expensive in the country and the price difference is a function of the number of students applying, the study found.
Landagis study also found there was no difference between law schools in terms to cost and quality.
In a survey of 2,000 law students by the Harvard Crimson, students who were seeking a law JD at the top law school (Stanford, Harvard, Yale and Yale Law School) were more than twice as likely to apply as those seeking a J.D. degree (Stanfield and Harvard, respectively).
There was also no difference in quality between the JD degree and the J.P. Law School program, with the JD students who had chosen the JD more than four times more likely to graduate than those who chose the J-School program.
While not all of Landais findings were positive, he was willing to make a few points worth noting.
Landage believes that the JD is a great investment for law students because it provides them with a solid academic foundation for their career.
As a result, he believes law schools should not charge more for JD than J.
Law students do.
He also believes that students who choose the JD program should be
