The New York City law school, Brooklyn Law School, has had a tough year.
Last year, a law professor, Eric Goldman, was arrested for attempting to bribe a reporter with $10,000 in cash.
In June, a professor was arrested and charged with fraud after he tried to pay for a newspaper reporter’s visit with $1,000.
In November, another law professor was charged with embezzlement after he allegedly tried to defraud a law student who was attending his school.
The school, which is ranked fourth among law schools in the country, is also the first to have to shut down its academic program.
“We have a very difficult job,” says William T. Kahan, a Brooklyn Law professor who is dean of the school.
“This is our second year in which there has been a significant loss of academic resources.”
The school also has lost a significant number of its faculty members, which Kahan says is the main reason for the cuts.
The law school also suffered significant financial loss, which forced the school to suspend the program in October.
Last month, a judge ruled that the school’s budget would be cut by about $2 million.
Khan says that was not a big enough cut to make up for the lost funding.
“I would expect it to be about $1 million less in total than we actually have,” he says.
Law students are also being asked to work two-week weeks, and the school is also offering stipends to students that could make up some of the cuts, according to Kahan.
Kahn says that the law school’s financial situation is only the tip of the iceberg.
“There are other cuts in our budget,” he adds.
“But it is a large chunk of the cost of the law schools.”
Kahan also says that he is “very concerned” that the state’s new financial aid policy is “not in keeping with the New York values of equality and fairness.”
“We don’t want to put a burden on our students,” he explains.
“And so we are trying to find a way to do what we can to support students in their academic pursuits.”
What You Should Know About New York’s Law Schools article When we visited Brooklyn Law this fall, the school was in the midst of a big budget battle, as the state and city were facing a severe budget shortfall.
“They have to make some tough decisions,” Kahan explains.
The next round of budget negotiations will likely be the toughest one yet for the school, Kahan adds.
New York has always been a state that is willing to sacrifice for its students, but this year, Kahn believes that the cost is being passed on to them.
“The law schools, the law faculties, the faculty, they’re all feeling the pain of it,” he tells The Daily Beast.
“It’s been hard to see the loss of the teaching positions.
It’s been harder to see people going to work part time.
It is hard to think about how much this hurts the students.”
In the fall, when students were asked what they were doing to pay their way through school, the most common response was to pay it back with time off work, Khan adds.
But he says that these plans may be too difficult to implement in practice.
“If you want to be able to pay back the money you’ve already borrowed, that’s your responsibility.
You have to have the resources to pay the debt,” he warns.
“You can’t just say, ‘I’m going to put the money into my savings account, I’m going have a savings account for the next six months and then I’m just going to pay this money back.’
That’s not going to help you.”
