Responses from members of the Rutgers-Camden law school community and the idiot Governor in action (also here). To take a research-active faculty, many of whom have close ties with the outstanding philosophy department at New Brunswick, and yank them out of the Rutgers system and drop them at "Rowan," a school no one outside of South Jersey has ever heard of...well, the whole thing has the makings of a catastrophe. Anyone who can leave will leave, and a lot can. (As the U.S. News fiasco with Loyola LA showed, the name change alone will cause the rank of the new "Rowan Law School" to crash.)
Finally, a bit of humor about a basically unfunny situation.
UPDATE: And here's a revealing portrait of the South Jersey politician/businessman behind the proposal to destroy Rutgers-Camden--by the way, he's a Rutgers-Camden drop-out!
