I write to inform you that the Law School will be locating to the Vineyards community in Naples, Florida in summer 2009 instead of the facility planned for the campus of Ave Maria University. The Law School's Board of Governors recently arrived at this decision in light of the declining national economy and the high construction costs resulting from the rising prices of raw materials.
The Vineyards Campus, which served as the campus for Ave Maria University from 2002-2007, will undergo a series of renovations to meet the particular educational needs of law students. Renovations include the reconfiguring of space for classrooms that will seat 75 students, the construction of a Moot Courtroom and Clinical Offices, and the refurbishing of facilities to include the Law School Bookstore and Computer Lab. Other potential enhancements to the campus include the addition of a limited-hours deli and the replacement of the outdoor swimming pool with an expanded patio/courtyard. With renovations completed, and pending acquiescence from the American Bar Association, the relocation will occur in summer 2009 and fall-semester classes will begin at the end of August 2009.
Our External Affairs and IT staffs have developed a series of web pages that offer additional information about the Vineyards Campus. I invite you to review these pages so that you might learn more about our new location: http://www.avemarialaw.edu/index.cfm?event=florida.future
I appreciate your continued support of the School of Law.
