Law Schools Use Merit Scholarships To Boost Rankings

Brooklyn Law School Dean Nicholas Allard recently sat down with Bloomberg Law’s Lee Pacchia for an interview. In the 13 minute interview, Dean Allard said that law schools need to find ways to cut the expense of merit scholarships, which they “use to buy students . . . with high LSATs” to improve the schools’ US News rankings. The money would be better spent on scholarships for students with financial need, he says. See the  video of the interview below:
