law school merger

Summary: Rutgers University’s two law schools will finally be reunited.

Rutgers University broke its law school in two in 1967, in consideration of the difficulties of having two campuses on opposite ends of the state. That grand divorce is finally over, pending a vote this Thursday with the school’s Board of Governors. Rutgers-Newark and Rutgers-Camden law schools may combine to become one of the largest law schools in the country.

This plan was first considered several years ago, but was scuttled after Gov. Chris Christie’s education restructuring proposal would have merged Rutgers-Camden with Rowan University in Glassboro.

That having fallen through, the schools announced their merger plans February 2013, and are just now bringing the vote to its climax.

Joining the schools together is possible now, in ways that were difficult in 1967, considering that new technology has made communication between the schools much better. Though both campuses will remain extant where they are standing, they will both profit in that they will not be competing with each other for the same students, faculty, and resources, as the school officials said.

For what it’s worth, they will be the only law school in the country with two dual campuses of equal size and status.
