It seems hard to believe, but apparently several businessmen have decided to open a new law school in Daytona Beach. Unfortunately, they've just gotten a rude surprise: the old police station they'd planned on using for opening Florida's twelfth law school turns out to be too small. While the city had promised 55,000 square feet in the facility, it turned out that appraisers could only scrounge up 38,000 square feet inside. The city's records were off by 45%. Oops!
We can only hope that this will delay the Grand Opening.
The owners say they plan a low cost institution - 35% cheaper than a "traditional law school" - that doesn't have much in the way of "vanity courses." According to the Daytona Times, "the idea is to open with a staff of approximately 80 people, including 12 full-time and adjunct professors."
