In his battle to protect the D.C. School of Law (DCSL) from the budget ax, former faculty member and D.C. Council Chairman Dave Clarke has just lost another weapon—namely, his argument that DCSL provides low-cost law degrees to residents who otherwise could not afford to attend other law schools (to say nothing of being admitted). DCSL’s board of governors has voted to double the tuition of D.C. residents to $7,000. Nonresidents will see their tuition rise $3,050 to $14,000.
