Roanoke Mayor David Bowers used a state of the city address today to float a proposal for a law school in the Star City.
“Lynchburg has a law school. Greensboro has a law school. Grundy has a law school, and Roanoke should have a law school, too,” Bowers said, as reported by The Roanoke Times .
Bowers, whose law office is a short walk from City Hall, said an ad-hoc group already is working quietly to explore the idea. Other city officials seemed dubious, however, the paper reports.
