Massachusetts finally gets public law school

Bbb After more than 200 years, the Commonowealth of Massachusetts is finally getting what it's desperately needed for so long:  a public law school.  The Massachusetts Board of Higher Education voted today to acquire the Southern New England School of Law, which will now become part of the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth.  This is obviously good news for the millions of Massachusetters (-ites?) who lack access to legal education because of the state's lack of a public law school.

The news release doesn't say what the new school will be called, but we suggest "Dartmouth Law School."  It will help a lot with the rankings.
