While the common perception is that lawyers make a ton of money, most are still haunted by the student debt left behind by their legal education. In this report from On The Road at ABA Midyear Meeting 2018, host Laurence Colletti talks to Kyle McEntee, Rachel Van Cleave, and CJ Ryan about the rising cost of law school including what’s driving the price to rise and what makes this a complicated issue to change. They also discuss other relevant issues such as reviewing the tenure process, declining bar passage rates, and the lack of legal jobs for successful graduates.

Rachel Van Cleave is the former dean and professor of law at Golden Gate University, School of Law.
