Tuition for law students at the University of Arizona will go down in the next school year.

In-state residents will pay 11 percent less. That means a decline from $27,288 to $24,381 in annual tuition.

Non-residents of Arizona will pay 8 percent less, $38,841, down from $42,298.

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.

Arizona State University says it will freeze tuition for its law students this year.
