Proposed UC Irvine Law School Fails to Get California Education Agency Approval

A new report from the California Postsecondary Education Commission recommends against creating a fifth University of California law school at the Irvine campus, a recommendation that may well be a decisive blow.  There is only one UC law school in Southern California, at UCLA; the other three UC law schools are in Northern California (at Berkeley, Davis, and San Francisco [i.e., Hastings]).  Meanwhile, a San Diego paper editorializes against a fifth UC law school (no doubt thinking, in part, about its likely deleterious effects on its three local, private schools:  University of San Diego, California Western, and Thomas Jefferson).
