    Don't have a problem with A&M having a law school. I do have a problem with this transaction. The Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex does not need 2 state supported Law Schools. The appropriate solution would be for A & M to get a law school on its Corpus Christi or Kingsville Campus or in San Antonio, and for Texas Wesleyan to sell its law school to Letourneau or to East Texas Baptist in the private sector. If the State gets the Texas Wesleyan asset, the school should be moved to Nacogdoches and become part of Stephen F. Austin State University.
