The State of California Has Essentially Stopped Subsidizing Legal Education

Take a look at these tuition rates, including their increase over the past few years and the rates going forward.  Michigan and Virginia are already de facto private law schools; Texas has been moving in that direction, though not as dramatically as Berkeley and UCLA.  Will there be an elite, genuinely public (i.e., in which the state subsidizes a majority of the legal education for state residents), law school five years from now?  I doubt it.  Another 'victory' for the neoliberal paradigm.
