ISU Pans Law School Plans

I do not know of anyone who thought this was a good idea other than the ISU administration. I wonder if they actually studied the need for a law school before they announced it to the public. This action made the administration appear ill-prepared, desperate and out of touch. I know ISU has struggled with declining enrollment while two of the schools that it started (Ball State and University of Southern Indiana) have prospered at its expense. As I mentioned before, this state has urgent employment needs that ISU could address by expanding of some of their programs. Perhaps they will return with another plan.


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — An attorney and former member of the state’s higher education commission has told Indiana State University administrators that he believes they should not pursue a proposal to start a new law school.

Note: In the interest of full disclosure, I went to ISU as an undergrad and I am an attorney.

Update: Deliberate Chaos reports on this story as well. He also gives Bureau of Labor Statistics figures for the number of lawyers in each Indiana metro area.

As if we need any more evidence that the Rule of Law has gone off the deep end, check out the news stories about David Letterman and the absurd Santa Fe restraining order.
