Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Thank you Sir, may I have another!



To those with a vested interest, it is no news that Ave Maria School of Law's Board of Governors has voted to conduct a second feasibility study regarding a proposed move to Florida. The first feasibility study was prepared in 2003 by J.M. Lord & Associates. The results of that study, although eagerly anticipated, were never released. That is, until now . . .

The 2003 study is now on display at the school's circulation desk, albeit, with many onerous viewing restrictions--apparently alumni are not included in the list of authorized viewers. It is over 1000 pages long. Here are some highlights:

The 2003 study is refreshingly frank, expressing what many knew for quite some time but the administration seemed unwilling to acknowledge. The question now is: What has changed, so that a new study is needed? In addition, why did the Dean choose his friend, Prof. Reed, to conduct the new study? J.M. Lord & Associates are in the business of providing consulting services to colleges and universities. Would it not have been logical and less expensive to have them update the 2003 study?

UPDATE: WHOSEAMSOL HAS TACKLED THIS ABSURDITY HEAD ON!! CHECK IT OUT AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS!!
