Drake University Law School, Des Moines, Iowa
by Akbar Ali
The faculty is comprised of more than 30 law professors who have all practiced law and possess expertise in a variety of legal disciplines ranging from constitutional, environmental, and juvenile law to women's and civil rights. For the class entering the 2006-2007 school year, 139 of 1,119 applicants were enrolled with a median LSAT score of 155. The median GPA for members of this class was 3.40. Minorities made up about 14% of the incoming class, which was 57% male and 43% female. In early 2007, Drake University constructed a room in its law library to house the archives of the National Bar Association, the nation's oldest and largest national organization of African-American lawyers and judges.
National Jurist magazine has rated Drake University Law School a Top 10 private-school "Best Buy for Your Money." Total tuition for one year of law school at Drake in the 2007-2008 academic year is estimated at $41,275. Tuition runs $27,350, with the remaining costs being made up primarily of room and board, textbooks, travel, and miscellaneous personal expenses. The university awards more than $3 million in scholarships each year to about half of its student body, though more than 90% of students use government-funded loans to help finance their law education.
Notable alumni include Iowa Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus (1977), Mercy College of Health Sciences President Barbara Quijano Decker (2000), and Chief Counsel of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's Division of Enforcement in Washington, DC, Joan McKown (1983).
