It was another tough year for law schools, but 2013’s woes prompted some legal educators to rethink their business models and experiment with new programs. Many of the innovations they embraced were born of necessity: Nationwide enrollment continued to plummet during 2013. Some law schools cut the size of their faculty to save money while others lowered tuition to appeal to more students. Still others launched masters programs for nonlaywers, and more schools announced accelerated programs allowing students to complete a bachelor’s and a law degree in six years instead of seven. Law schools continued to struggle to place their graduates in legal positions, while U.S. News & World Report adjusted its ranking methodology to give more weight to those jobs.

Here’s our Top 10 list of the biggest legal education stories of the year.
