Kaplan, the LSAT people, look to open a law school in D.C.

It hopes to open in 2013.  From the Washington Post:

Kaplan is an educational company owned by The Washington Post Co. that operates both brick-and-mortar schools and online instructional programs and schools. Locally, Kaplan Higher Education has campuses in Frederick and Hagerstown, where it offers degree programs and instruction in health, business, criminal justice and other fields. Kaplan's Concord Law School already offers law degrees online.

. . . .

Kaplan's backers argue that it offers important opportunities for low-income students. Washington is already home to law schools run by American University, Catholic University, George Washington University, Georgetown University, Howard University and the University of the District of Columbia.
