TUCSON, Ariz. Tuition for law school students at the University of Arizona is going down.

The school is reducing tuition by about 11 percent for in-state students and by 8 percent for nonresidents. The change comes as the school faces a 13.5 percent drop in first-year students and a decrease of more than one-third in the number of applicants since 2005.

Officials say lowering tuition is part of a plan to help students manage law school costs.

About 80 percent of law students receive financial aid from the college. That's a higher percentage than most other law schools.

UA law school spokeswoman Nancy Stanley says the high price of law degrees is one factor driving enrollment declines at many schools nationwide.

Arizona State University says it's freezing tuition for its law students this year.
