OPEN UNIVERSITY SEPTEMBER 13, 2007
v. Painter, the Supreme Court noted that a new law school could never, whatever its material endowment, acquire
those qualities which are incapable of objective measurement but which make for greatness in a law school. Such qualities, to name but a few, include reputation of the faculty, experience of the administration, position and influence of the alumni, standing in the community, traditions and prestige.
Application of that opinion to the new law school in this
story, as also well summarized in links here, is left to the reader.
Application of this particular aspect of this story to the brevity and obliquity of this post is probably too obvious to mention.
