It was announced that Wilkes University will move forward with its law school plans. This is great news for our region. This along with the medical college, are the exact steps we should be taking to make our area more educated and to attract good jobs here. Instead of ridiculous "pie in the sky" projects that only bennefit the few, higher education is always a good bet. Kudos to Wilkes! Hopefully one of my children will attend it some day.

Just what this area needs...more lawyers.....

Although this still will be good for the area, might keep some law students in the area rather than going out of town for law school....and might attract some out-of-town students here...

Whatever your thoughts on lawyers may be, this is indeed good news for W/B and NEPA in general!

Not everyone loves lawyers. As the old saying goes "everyone hates lawyers until they actually need one". Anyway, this is good news for Wilkes-Barre and the region.
