Classes begin at Loyola Law school this week, but this year there are about 20 fewer students than usual. Loyola decided to reduce the size of its incoming class after alumni complained that they couldn't find jobs.

The school is not alone. A survey by Kaplan Test Prep found that 51 percent of law schools have reduced their incoming classes.
