7 hours ago Top 13 Cheapest Law Schools in the United States

Estimated Reading Time: 9 mins
Published: Sep 15, 2017
1. Public Law 503. President Franklin Roosevelt had already issued Executive Order 9066 authorizing military officials to detain anyone they felt would hinder the war effort.
2. Indian Removal Act. The Indian Removal Act is yet another reason why Andrew Jackson is the worst president in US history. A longtime advocate of what he called “Indian removal,” Jackson had fought against a number of different tribes, stealing their land and giving it to white farmers while he was an army general.
3. Alien And Sedition Acts. Shortly after the American Revolution, with the Constitution and the rights granted under it still fresh in everyone’s minds, the president and Congress decided to stomp all over it.
4. Black Codes. The Black Codes, a collection of laws passed throughout a number of Southern states in 1865–66, can be seen as a precursor to the Jim Crow laws with which people are more familiar.
5. Fugitive Slave Act Of 1850. Beginning in the 1830s, abolitionists in the North had finally begun to coalesce into a more powerful group, frightening slave owners in the South.
6. Patriot Act. Passed only weeks after the attacks on September 11, 2001, the Patriot Act was ostensibly created to help the US government uncover suspected terrorists and stop them before they could carry out any attacks.
7. Gulf Of Tonkin Resolution. Much like the Roman general and eventual dictator Sulla did when he first crossed the pomoerium (city limits) of Rome with his army—setting the stage for people like Julius Caesar—the Gulf Of Tonkin Resolution of 1964 has been used as precedent for many US presidents who wished to engage in armed conflict.
8. Alien Registration Act Of 1940 (aka Smith Act) As the United States’ entry into World War II looked increasingly likely, US lawmakers tried to chop off the head of the rebellious menace they felt could help take the country down from within.
9. Espionage Act And Sedition Act. The Espionage Act of 1917 and the related Sedition Act of 1918 were passed shortly after the United States’ entry into World War I. The Espionage Act was created as a compromise between the US, with its relatively tolerant opinion on freedom of speech, and Great Britain, which had passed a massive ban on speech pertaining to national secrets a few years earlier.
10. Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act. The Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act (officially known as the Tariff Act of 1930) is one of many nationalistic laws passed by the United States.

1. Virus-related laws include those offering help to essential workers, boosting unemployment benefits and requiring time off for sick employees. A resolution in Alabama formally encouraged fist-bumping over handshakes. While legislatures tackled some elements of the coronavirus outbreak this year, most sessions had ended before the current wave of cases, deaths and renewed stay-at-home orders. Lawmakers of both major parties have vowed to make the pandemic response a centerpiece of their 2021 sessions, addressing issues ranging from school reopenings to governors' emergency powers. The virus also refocused attention on the nation's uneven and expensive heath care system. Tackling issues of coverage and costs were common themes in 2020. A Washington measure caps the monthly out-of-pocket cost of insulin at $100 until January 1, 2023, and requires the state Health Care Authority to monitor the price of insulin.

1. Ave Maria School of Law. With a high acceptance rate and average student to faculty ratio, Ave Maria School of Law must make up for slack somewhere. However, it isn’t in the area of bar passage (only 53%) or high-scoring LSATs.
2. Boston University. Here is another law school with a great library which ranks #12 in the nation. But as for whether it’s a good school or not is up for debate.
3. Albany Law School of Union University. This school, on the other hand, has a well-stocked law library and ranks number twenty-five in that particular area.
4. Belmont University. Based in Nashville, Belmont University is number #25 on the bar passage list, with nearly 93% of their graduates passing the difficult test.
5. California Western. With a student/faculty ratio of 9.5:1 and a tuition that is scary-high for what they have to offer and the numbers they present, California Western hops on the list pretty easily.
6. Arizona Summit Law School (formerly the Phoenix School of Law) Called the Arizona Summit Law School since 2013, this law school has the displeasure of admitting that forty-one students failed out of their program last year, while thirty-five of them left by transferring out, and twenty discontinued for several other reasons.
7. Capital University. When it comes to GPAs and SATs, as well as bar passage statistics, Capital actually comes in fairly high. The problem is when their numbers are compared to every other law school in the country; they simply fall short.
8. Brooklyn Law School. This school, according to Top Law Schools has one of the absolute worst curves imaginable, and that after being changed recently.
9. Catholic U of America (Columbus) Catholic U makes the list due to several factors, one of which is a slightly-below-average post-grad employment rate.

1. In 1990, Congress passed the Pollution Prevention Act(P2 Act) which states "The Environmental Protection Agency must establish a source reduction program which collects and disseminates information, provides financial assistance to States, and implements the other activities...." The "Findings" section of the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990explains why Congress passed the Act. Some of the reasons include: 1. The United States of America annually produces millions of tons of pollution and spends tens of billions of dollars per year controlling this pollution. 2. There are significant opportunities for industry to reduce or prevent pollution at the source through cost-effective changes in production, operation, and raw materials use. 3. The opportunities for source reduction are often not realized because existing regulations, and the industrial resources they require for compliance, focus upon treatment and disposal, rather than source reduction. 4.
