ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on the issues concerning law school cost and access in the country. The study compares law schools with professional schools in terms of cost and minority enrollment and examines the factors that affect the cost of law school and minority access to law school. It discovers that accreditation requirements are not a major impact on the cost and access of law school.
