Valparaiso University says it will shut down its nearly 140-year-old law school. The decision comes after multiple attempts to find a viable alternative, including a collaboration with Tennessee State University that didn’t materialize. Valpo suspended first-year admissions to the program last year and says it plans to teach-out the remaining law students. Approximately 100 second and third-year students are currently enrolled. The university cites “significantly declining” enrollment in law school and shrinking demand for professionals in the field. Valpo says it is working closely with accreditors throughout its teach-out process.
