Tuition at NY Metro area law schools

Got a letter from school today stating the tuition rate for the upcoming year. What’s interesting is that it compares the tuition at all NY area law schools.

Full-time tuition at NY metro area law schools:

Columbia 34,580 784
NYU 34,000 900
Fordham 30,930 416
Brooklyn 31,070 (1L)
30,200 (2L)
29,450 (3L)
130
Cardozo 30,900 (1L)
29,510 (2L&3L)
300
New York Law School 32,090 460
Hofstra 28,434 800
Pace 28,960 110
St. John’s 28,400 n/a
Touro 24,240 450

(part time data omitted by me, because I wanted to type less)
It would be very interesting to index this by the average starting salary for graduates of each school…

New Jersey

After watching the entire Sopranos Season 2, and seeing a different side of New Jersey than what I’m familiar with, I’m glad to be exchanging my (expired) NJ driver’s license for a NY one.
But it’s a good week for New Jersey, or at least the two sports teams that play at the Arena formerly named after Brendan Byrne. The Devils will be playing in the NHL finals, in a matchup that pits “a Mickey Mouse team” against Mickey Mouse’s team. The Nets will play in the NBA finals, making this the first year where teams will be playing in the same arena in the NBA and NHL Stanley Cup finals since 1994. In 1994, Madison Square Garden watched the Rangers win their first Cup since 1940 and the Knicks lose to Houston in 7 games. Note that neither the Rangers nor the Knicks are in the playoffs this year.

Consumers, Congress & Copyright

Consumers, Congress and Copyright Issues

According to a 2003 SutherlandGold survey of 1,000 US consumers, 60% of respondents think that in its effort to crack down on internet piracy, Congress should place a priority on protecting consumers’ right to legally-obtained content. However, 54% of consumers fear that Congressional mandates will have unintentional side effects for technological innovation.
