TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The University of Toledo's law school says it's cutting in-state tuition to try to remain competitive.

The school's board of trustees on Monday unanimously approved the 13-percent tuition cut.

Law School Dean Daniel Steinbock says the move was necessary for the school to compete. He says law schools across the country have seen drastic declines in applications as tuition continues to rise.

The (Toledo) Blade (http://bit.ly/1uQJKiF ) reports that just three years ago, more than 1,400 students applied to attend the law school. This year, the number dropped to 475 applicants.

Current law school tuition is $20,579, but the price will roll back to $17,900 in the fall of 2015 for in-state and Michigan students. That's about comparable to the 2010 tuition rate. The rate for out-of-state students will also drop.
