UNT law school idea dead
« on: June 03, 2005, 09:02:31 PM »
There were several posts about this a few months ago. The Texas Legislature just concluded without passing the legislation that sought to create a new public law school at the University of North Texas--Denton.

Good.  Texas doesn't need another law school.  At least not in the Dallas area.  The only way they should create another law school is if they are going to put it down in the valley or in deep south Texas.

Two - SMU which is in Dallas and Texas Wesleyan which is in Fort Worth. You could technically count Baylor which is an hour and a half away, but there are only two true law schools in the DFW area.

Hello, there aren't any public law schools in North Texas.  There are what, 3 laws schools in Houston, 2 private and one public?

And there are zero law schools period in South Texas.  Houston is closer to Dallas than Laredo...or Brownsville.

Answer no 1:  Your probably right, South Texas does need a law school, but that doesnt mean North Texas doesnt need a public law school either.

Ansewr No 2: I'm pretty sure I read the school would be in Dallas not Denton, and I went to school in Denton and didnt mind it that much.
