'U' law applications fall by
By ERIC MATTSON
Five representatives of the University's law school
told the Board of Regents yesterday that a 5 percent
;decline in the number of applicants to the school
'reflects a similar trend nationwide.
Law school Dean Terrance Sandalow said that only
13,800 students. had applied for admission by the
'deadline this year, compared to an all-time high of
REGENT NELLIE Varner (D-Detroit) asked
'whether the lower number of applicants was a
:response to the large number of lawyers already in
If there is a glut of lawyers in the country's work
force, University law school graduates haven't yet
;felt it. Sandalow said that 90 percent of the Univer-
sity's law school graduates have job offers by the
time they graduate.
"The job opportunities available to our graduates
are really quite remarkable," he said. "We see no
pvidence of the softening of the market for our

to find a job when they graduate, Sandalow defended

"The primary objective of law school ... is to teach
people to think like lawyers," he said. "Law school,
of course, is also concerned with the rules of law."
High tuition at the law school may, however, be
keeping students from applying. Michigan residents
pay $4,000 a year and out-of-state students have a
tuition bill nearly twice that.
WHILE "MOST of our peer schools (such as Har-
vard and Yale) have higher tuition than we do," San-
dalow said, prestigious schools like The University of
Virginia and The University of Texas boast tuition
which is half that of the University's.
The law school's minority recruitment is suffering
as a result of the high tuition and, Sandalow said,
because "we don't have as good a financial aid
program (as other peer institutions)."
A large number of retiring faculty members poses
another potential problem for law school officials this
BUT PROF. Fred Schauer said the large number of
openings could result in a more diverse faculty,
although he said it is becoming increasingly difficult
to find qualified professors.
"It's a lot of work trying to cast the net wider,"
Schauer said. "We are consciously trying to do that."
A recent trend towards dual-career families is
making it increasingly difficult to steal people away
from other institutions, Schauer said.
In other words, Ann Arbor's distance from large
metropolitan areas which offer more job oppor-
tunities makes it more difficult for potential faculty
members' spouses to find work in the area, giving
East Coast schools the edge.
Sandalow took Schauer's observation a bit farther.
"The two-career family poses as great a threat to the
University . . . as the state's financial troubles,"'he

with changes in the outside world
because "it's a dynamic situation,"
Two of the changes the school will
have to face is the larger amount of
time faculty members spend on
treating patients instead of teaching
students, and the changing demand for
doctors in the marketplace, according

Johnson was selected from a pool of
150 nominees from all over the country.
A medical school search committee
whittled the list down to six applicants,
