A new law school at the University of California, Irvine has a big incentive being rolled out: top notch students who shudder at cost of a legal education during the recession may be eligible for free tuition for three years

San Diego, California (CaymanMama.com) — As high as educations expenses have become these days, those diligent students who are persistent and hard working, good news may be on the horizon.

In fact, a new law school is slated to open next fall at the University of California, Irvine and a big incentive is being rolled out: top notch students who shudder at cost of a legal education during the recession may be eligible for free tuition for three years.

The incentive is part of a grand strategy by Erwin Chemerinsky, a prominent constitutional law scholar and dean of the new law school, and aims to entice Ivy League-caliber students to the first public university law school in the state in 40 years.

According to USA TODAY, “Scholarship winners will be chosen for their potential to emerge three years later as legal stars on the ascendance. Only the best and brightest need apply, but the school hopes to offer full scholarships to all 60 members of its inaugural class in 2009. Subsequent classes will be on a normal tuition basis.”

Chemerinsky is confident the chance at free education, mixed with a public-interest curriculum and the University of California name, will help to fill the seats at his first class and eventually land the University of California, Irvine among the nation’s highest rated law schools.

“Our goal is to be a top 20 law school from the first time we are ranked,” he said.
