Louisiana College in Pineville, La., has announced plans for a new law school that will open its doors next year. The 101-year-old Baptist college hopes to build a "conservative, Christian law school," and will name it for retired Texas appeals court judge Paul Pressler, a long-time leader in the Southern Baptist Convention. Pineville, for those who aren't familiar with it, is a pleasant little town just across the Red River from Alexandria, La., about equidistant from Houston and New Orleans.
As folks who believe that more jobs for law professors are always a good idea, we wish them a hearty welcome to the club.
