Hardy har, so it was mentioned in one faculty letter six months ago. It's hardly relevant to the merger debate in its current form. Though it would be wise to consider if Christie truly cared about cutting state costs (as opposed to whatever agenda is driving him now).

Better yet, it would help conserve state resources in that instead of having to pay $$$ for two law schools, they'd only have to support one. I could see a Rutgers Law (NB) ending up along the lines of a strong regional school like UMN, Wisconsin, UNC or UIUC (pre-scandal).


+1000. But seriously, could we have the single Rutgers Law on the beach?


All in favor of Rutgers - LBI?

Rutgers - Margate would be preferred. Let the North Jersey kids trash it up in Asbury Park or something.

Does NJ really need 3 law schools? Does the Philly area really need 4? (5 if you count the crappy one in Delaware).

6 if you count Drexel in there: Penn, Rutgers, Temple, Villanova, Drexel, and Widener (some Penn State grads too) all feed into Philadelphia and it doesn't seem that there's enough to go around.

No, but the Rut-Ro merger wouldn't eliminate any of the law schools.

I understand this. I'm questioning why the school exists in the first place.

Because singling out RUC, which places fairly well on a state/local level, totally makes sense. Are you, by chance, a FletcherReed alt?
