Ten New Law Schools in the Works?

The National Law Journal (6/2/2008) reports
that as many as ten new law schools are
in the works, most of them in the Northeast.

In addition to three proposed law schools for New York
State, writer Leigh Jones reports on plans to build law
schools in Connecticut, Maine, Pennsylvania and elsewhere.

Jones looks at the concerns raised by some law school
administrators, legal educators and faculty about the
impact of this deluge of law schools on existing
law schools and on the legal job market.
