UD's Vice President Larry White tells WDEL their first class law program would center around Delaware's status as a corporate capital.

"Taking advantage of Delaware’s unique stature as a corporate center to develop specialties in areas that are of interest to the corporate community.

White says if the plan gets formal approval, the school would open its doors in Newark in 2015.

"Having a flagship state university with legal scholars offers exciting synergies with lawyers, judges, and like all law schools in the United States it would be a competitive process to be admitted and to study law at the University of Delaware."

Delaware has just one law school right now -- the Widener University School of Law in Brandywine Hundred.
