For all of those interested in the free tuition program at UC Irvine's new law school, Petra has an interesting look over at Cal Law. The story is free with registration, and includes a discussion with Director of Admissions Victoria Ortiz, formerly of Boalt.
"[Ortiz] and her staff at UC-Irvine's law school have been traveling to various corners of the country to recruit students at college fairs in places like New England, Pennsylvania, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Michigan and Minnesota. Ortiz has also met with pre-law advisers and with college clubs and societies. When candidates ask about job prospects, Ortiz points out the 70 or so employers that have pledged to at least interview on the law school's campus, including firms like Bingham McCutchen; Allen Matkins Leck Gamble Mallory & Natsis; Arnold & Porter; Irell & Manella; Morrison & Foerster and O'Melveny & Myers."
Petra also delves deeper into enrollment trends this year, and how schools are dealing with the uncertain applicant pool sizes.
