ABA Cockroaches Gives Final Approval on Rutgers Law School Merger
The TT Announcement: On July 31, 2015, Rutger$ Univer$ity issued a press release labeled “American Bar Association Approves Merger Creating Rutgers Law School.” Look at this excrementitious opening:
“The Council of the American Bar Association (ABA) Section on Legal Education and Admission to the Bar approved today the merger of Rutgers’ law schools into one unified Rutgers Law School with two distinct locations in Camden and Newark, during its annual meeting. In June, the ABA’s Accreditation Committee voted to recommend approval of the proposed merger as did the Rutgers Board of Governors in April.
"We are elated with the ABA’s decision to approve the new Rutgers Law School,” says Acting Co-Dean John Oberdiek. “We believe strongly that our ambitious model allows for increased opportunities for all Rutgers Law students to advance their career searches and to learn from a wider selection of world-class faculty.”
Keenly attuned to the evolving demands of the legal profession and to the need for legal scholarship and education to address the public good, the new Rutgers Law School offers a comprehensive curriculum, propelled by one of the nation’s largest faculties with wide-ranging expertise. The expansive course offerings are made possible through cutting-edge immersive technology currently in place that connects the two locations and brings great legal scholars and students together in real time.
According to Co-Dean and 1983 alumnus Ronald K. Chen, Rutgers Law has a proven tradition of educating diverse new generations of legal professionals for public and private practice. “Rutgers has long provided exceptional and affordable legal educations to its students, but now as a Big Ten law school and a leader in legal education in the Northeast, we are positioned to make an impact on the national legal landscape” says Chen. “Not only will Rutgers Law School continue to further the missions of Rutgers University-Newark, Rutgers University-Camden and the entire Rutgers system, it will serve New Jersey as its public law school.” [Emphasis mine]
Did you see anything of substance in that portion above?! Academic swine excel at screwing over students and taxpayers, and they also engage in meaningless platitudes and verbal diarrhea. By the way, “co-dean” sounds idiotic. This is further compounded by the fact that cockroaches Oberdiek and Chen are acting co-deans of this cesspool. Their mothers must be immensely proud.
Other Coverage: The Philadelphia Business Journal published a Jeff Blumenthal article on this development, on August 3, 2015. That story was entitled “ABA approves Rutgers plan to merge law schools.” Check out the following excerpt:
“Rutgers University’s plan to merge its two law schools into one unified institution, yet still maintain its two campuses in Camden and Newark, N.J., has received approval from the American Bar Association.
The ABA’s section on legal education and admission to the bar voted on the plan Monday during its annual meeting. In June, the ABA’s Accreditation Committee voted to recommend approval of the proposed merger as did the Rutgers Board of Governors in April.
The integrated Rutgers Law School will begin using a single application in the fall of 2015 for the 2016 entering class.
Rutgers will use its immersive distance education technology to support expanded course offerings and bring a sense of common identity and students separated by 90 miles. The university introduced the programming technology last spring.
The school also has created one Rutgers University Law Review and combined the two school’s respective law journals.
Merging the two law schools is actually a reunification.
They were first separated into two Rutgers entities, with their own accreditation, faculty and curriculums in 1967. Law school leadership first suggested bringing the two schools back together in 2011, but the move was put on hold as Gov. Chris Christie's proposal to fold Rutgers University-Camden into Rowan University. Once that idea ran its course, Rutgers President Robert Barchi announced in 2013 the plan for the unification of the law schools.
Two co-deans will lead the merged Rutgers Law School. Rutgers said the co-deans will maintain their individual lines of authority, reporting to the chancellors in Camden and Newark.” [Emphasis mine]
For $ome rea$on, the board of governor$ decided that this supposedly single/combined toilet will still require two deans, i.e. typically the highest-paid cockroaches at an ABA institution. That actually makes perfect sense – when you realize that the “educators” do not give a damn about the students.
Conclusion: In the final analysis, this is not a surprise. The rodents at these two state law schools were planning to merge for quite a while. Plus, the ABA criminals will approve damn near any proposal from member commodes. Hell, if “law professors” and deans at each trash pit wanted to toss one student out of a window each semester, I’m sure the bitches and hags at the American Bar Association would give their approval. Of course, they would make sure that it did not occur until after the student loan check cleared.
