The proposed Rutgers Camden and Rowan University merger continues to face institutional opposition. Yesterday we posted the Camden County Bar Association's resolution opposing the merger between Rutgers Camden and Rowan University. The New Jersey State Bar Association (NJSBA) has also formally opposed the proposed merger. You can read the full text of the New Jersey State Bar Association's resolution by clicking here. The resolution contemplates Rutgers Camden's past academic achievement and contribution to the South Jersey community. The resolution specifically went on to say, “…the Board of Trustees of the New Jersey State Bar Association considers the proposed merger of Rutgers University School of Law-Camden into Rowan University to be harmful to the future of legal education in New Jersey, to the viability and success of the bar, particularly in the southern part of the state, and to the communities served by the law school, its students and established alumni; “ Rick DeMichele currently serves as a trustee to the NJSBA.
