Searching for an additional $5.5 billion in budget cuts, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Tuesday proposed eliminating almost all state funding for Hastings College of the Law. The proposed $10.3 million cut amounts to roughly one-quarter of the state school's academic budget, said David Seward, Hastings' chief financial officer. Eliminating state funding for California's oldest law school would effectively make Hastings a private campus funded solely by tuition.
