NATIONAL JURIST — The recent spike in law school interest has caused a number of reactions, such as a bump in enrollment, more competition for seats and a scramble for scholarship money. Here’s another apparently: shrinking transfer options. In 2014, 5.5% of students transferred, most of them after their first year. In 2021, just 3.6% did so. Transferring can be an attractive option for high-achieving first-year students. They get an opportunity to move to a better school. And schools normally like to accept them because such students have shown they can handle the rigors of law school. It doesn’t normally work the other way around. Stanford Law School students don’t often consider transferring. Zero did last year. However, 11 transfers got in. So why is the drop happening nationally?
