New Law Schools Not Likely Regents Expected to Turn Down Plans


MacDonald, Mary, The Florida Times Union


A legislative push to establish law schools at the two state universities with the highest minority enrollments is expected to falter today before the state Board of Regents.

But the anticipated recommendation of Chancellor Adam Herbert to pass on the creation of new law schools and instead bolster minority recruitment, is not expected to end the debate.

Legislators interested in a law school affiliated with the historically black Florida A&M University already have inquired about the purchase of Florida Coastal School of Law.

Donald Lively, dean of the private law school in Jacksonville, described the discussions as preliminary and his response as non-committal.

The inquiries, made by two legislators, came in the spring as Florida Coastal prepared its request for provisional accreditation by the American Bar Association, he said.

"The inquiries we have had [were] whether or not we would sell the school to the state," Lively said yesterday. "I've made it a point not to pursue it, in our current environment. It's premature."

He said he did not want to disclose their names.

Last month, the law school received an endorsement for provisional accreditation from the legal education arm of the bar association, leaving a single layer of review before it achieves that transitional status.

Bishop Holifield, general counsel for FAMU, declined to comment this week on any contact made between the university and Florida Coastal.

In separate reports forwarded to the chancellor this spring, both FAMU and Florida International University in Miami have made a case for establishment of their own law schools.
