The University of California system is struggling to keep its budget balanced amidst the greater California budget crisis. One law professor's solution? Don't open any new schools.
Specifically, kill plans to open the new UC Irvine School of Law - which is set to welcome its first class Aug. 19 for orientation - says Professor Stephen M. Bainbridge of UCLA Law.
Odds are, with the California economy doing even worse than the nation as a whole, we have even less need for extra lawyers than we did when the (California Postsecondary Education Commission) rejected the Irvine proposal back in 2006.
Kill it now and put the money to better use, such as helping reverse some of the cuts to undergraduate education."
