The New Ave Maria Law School, Formerly of Ann Arbor, Set to Open Its Doors in Florida Next Month

Story from a local paper here.  The more optimistic take of Andrew Morriss (Illinois) regarding the relocated school's prospects--quoted in the article--may well be right.  The big obstacle will be hiring faculty.  No one with any choice will be eager to join a law school where tenured faculty have previously been terminated, probably illegally.   The school will have to give assurances that they are running an academic institution, and not a Domino's Pizza fiefdom.
