President Obama supports two-year law school degree

Harvard Law grad made his stance clear during speech about tuition reform

If it were up to President Obama, law school students would shoulder less debt. 

That much became clear last week when the president was speaking at a town-hall meeting about tuition reform at Binghamton University. During his talk, he said he supported the controversial idea of shortening law school to two years instead of three, which could help students lessen their debt. Students who graduated law school in 2012 have an average of $108,293 in tuition debt.
