Yahoo! News reports that Yale University is ending a 28-year-old program that offered free tuition to journalists to attend law school for a year to gain a better understanding of legal issues. The report says that the university withdrew its financial aid after a private foundation pulled its funding of the program, called the Knight Fellowships in Law for Journalists.
