You have to wonder about Segal's journalistic skills. He uses Duncan as an example of a school that is trying to provide low cost legal education for students in the Knoxville area. Their tuition is $28.6K per year and students are advised to be able to come up with $50K per year for tuition. Room, board books and fees at Duncan. Meanwhile down the road in Knoxville at the University of Tennessee tuition for state residents is $14.1K per year and the school says that $35K should cover the same things for which Dincan recommends $50K. Most of us are aware of the fact that it is fairly common for struggling private universities to found law schools as profit centers. Maybe Segal should look a little harder at the books and what is going on here. Sure, I know that Tennessee receives a subsidy from the state. That is not the issue. The issue right now in a world crowded with lawyers, what is the most economical choice for a student?
