The More the Merrier

At one session last summer at the joint AALS Contract/Commercial Law session in Montreal, some folks in one of the discussions made it clear that they did not view their law schools as "vocational schools" for the training of lawyers.

Drexel_university So maybe there's room for some new institutions who do think of law schools as vocational institutions.  Three of them are planning on starting new law schools.  A new article in Inside Higher Education (thanks to Michael Olivas of the U of Houston for the tip) talks about proposed new law schools at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pa.

One thing's for sure -- from a look at this year's Faculty Appointments Register, none of them will have trouble finding faculty.
