UCSD, Cal Western pause talks on law school

With the state budget crisis in their faces, the leaders of UCSD and California Western School of Law have agreed to take a break in discussions to create a UCSD School of Law.

In a press release issued Wednesday, UCSC Chancellor Marye Anne Fox thanked those on the committee who have been exploring the potential relationship.

“Their time and valuable work over these past 15 months helped us see the tremendous benefits of this idea for both institutions and our region,” she said. “California Western’s strengths made the concept of an affiliation appealing, but the state’s changing fiscal picture makes this opportunity difficult to pursue at this time.”

Kenneth L. Greenman, who chairs the California Western Board of Trustees, added, “These discussions identified new possibilities for interdisciplinary work which meet the needs of our region’s innovation economy and contribute to economic growth and competitiveness. Given the enormous benefits of this combination, we look forward to a time when formal talks can resume.”

The schools plan to continue current collaborations, including dual and joint degree programs, speaker series and the Community Law Project, the release said.
