Is a law school in Happy Valley's future? Penn State's pitch for locating the Dickinson School of Law in University Park is back in the news, with memos from Penn State officials on why the move should happen. See reporter Gwenn Miller's story today. The university officials continue to make a case that law school students would have their best chance if their classes were here, with the rest of the university community.
Meanwhile, in Carlisle, home of the law school, local officials have been told they'll get $25 million from the state's capital budget, courtesy of Gov. Ed Rendell, if they raise a matching amount for law school renovations.
Stay tuned as this story plays out. It's all up to the Dickinson board of governors, and the next meeting is in June.
