The cut will save $4,309 for students from Iowa, who will now pay annual tuition of $21,965, and $7,750 for nonresident students, who will pay $39,500.
Law dean Gail Agrawal explained that the move is intended to help the law school stay competitive in a declining market for legal services. “The University of Iowa College of Law has long been recognized as providing high quality for an affordable price. We want to take a leading role in the evolving face of legal education and ensure our place as a best value proposition among the top public law schools,” she explained.
