Following up on Sunday's post about the controversy surrounding Ava Maria School of Law's possible relocation from Michigan to Florida: this week's National Law Journal has an article on the subject (Tension Grows Over Ave Maria School of Law's Possible Relocation, by Leigh Jones):
Faculty and alumni groups at Ave Maria School of Law in Michigan have issued votes of no confidence in the school's dean over the newly accredited school's possible relocation to a Catholic-oriented community in Florida. In two separate resolutions sent to the law school's board of governors, the Ave Maria School of Law Alumni Association board of directors and a group of 11 faculty members called for the resignation of Dean Bernard Dobranski, who helped lead the six-year-old school to full accreditation last year.
The resolutions reflect strong opposition on the part of many alumni and faculty members to the Ann Arbor school's possible move to the Naples, Fla., area.
