A new program at Duke University School of Law aims to pull judges from the bench and toss them into the classroom.
But to populate the program with jurists, Duke will have to battle two persistent dilemmas: time and money.
In an economic climate so dire that state courts can’t afford to fill some vacancies, can judges muster the time and funds to drop their day-to-day work, fly to North Carolina and devote 3.5 weeks to earning a master’s of judicial studies?
Duke will do its best to scrounge up scholarship dollars for the 10 to 15 students it hopes to enroll in its first class, set to begin in May 2012, said Duke School of Law Dean David Levi. The tuition for the two-year program: $16,972.
