CHICAGO (J) - A boom in
enrollment has filled most of
the nation's law schools to
capacity and many educators
attribute the increase to a.
growing social concern among

among the college generation,"
said a law school administrator.
"They're socially concerned,
anxious to participate in change

Law school enrollments have
doubled in the last decade and
skyrocketed nearly 20 per cent
in the last year, according to
the American Bar Association.
Some of the reasons: a lack
of job opportunities for Ph.D.
holders; a rising number of
women applicants and the end
of military service for the last
of the World War II male baby

acknowledge that a desire to
change the system was a major
factor in their decision to enter
law school, but they are prag-
matic about the paths they will
pursue to reach their goals.

about what he planned to do

A recent survey of 146 ABA-
accredited law schools showed
enrollment rose 13,655, or nearly
20 per cent, to 82,041 in 1970,
the largest annual increase in
post World War II years.
In contrast, graduate school
enrollments rose 61 per cent,
Michael Cordoza, executive
director of the Association of
American Law Schools, s a ys
the rise could be due to a num-
ber of factors.
Many college students, he
said, "have heard jobs for PhDs
are falling off whereas jobs for
law school graduates have held
up pretty well. And we're at the
peak of the World War II baby
boom and those boys who were
born right after the war and
have finished military serv-
ice are 25 and 26, just the age
to enter law school."
Most administrators says a
major impetus is the mood of
social concern that is sweeping
college campuses but predict its
intensity will cool within a few
"It's somewhat of a fad, cur-
rently," said Harry B. Reese,
professor at Northwestern Uni-
versity Law School. "The force
of the movement to change so-
ciety, just like the movement to
save the environment, will pro-
bably diminish on college cam-

meaningful work two years after
they leave," said a dean at a
prestigious Midwestern 1a w
"You have to take them with
a grain of salt," he went on.
"There's a lot of talk about ef-
fecting social change through
the law, but there's a lot more
talk than action."
Another cause for the en-
rollment boom is the growing in-
terest of women in the law.
The number of women law stu-
dents has jumped by 159 per
cent in the last five years, the
ABA says, and administrators
believe the women's lib move-
ment is in part responsible.
