From the Interim Provost and Vice President Academic

Law school letter of intent and whitepaper now available

The law school originating committee, comprised of faculty members from across campus, led the first round of consultations with the community and developed a letter of intent (LOI) based on the feedback provided.  The LOI is the first step in the development of a proposal for a new juris doctor (JD) program, and will be available online until November 17, 2016. The whitepaper, Training Tomorrow’s Legal Professionals, is also available on the Office of the Provost and Vice President Academic website.

The proposed program focuses on innovation in legal education for the benefit of graduates, their communities, and the broader society. Please review the LOI and provide comments to before November 17, 2016.
