In answer to questions, Can-tlon said MSU's law school would initially have a class of about 100 full and parttime students. He said those planning the curriculum have a chance to pioneer in new areas, such as environmental law and other areas that are developing in the space age. While attempting to inovate new areas of law, Cantlon said, the new school would also try to provide in-service training and professional opportunities for area lawyers. In the audience was Thomas E. Brennan, chief justice of the Michigan Supreme Court, and among the organizers and supporters of the p r o p o s e d Thomas M. Cooley Law School. In response to questions, Brennan said the proposed law school is scheduled to begin classes next fall in Lansing. He said it will be organized along the lines of the Detroit College of Law which is a pri-v a t e, nonprofit organization catering to people who work full-time at other jobs. Brennan emphasized that the proposed Cooley school would not be in competition with the proposed MSU school and said he hopes the two will complement each other. One of Cantlon's closing remarks was; "It seems that the major question is not whether the Lansing area needs an-other law school, but how many and when." W. Robert Carr, MSU researcher and one of two people in charge of liaison between the university and the Legislature, today said the main focus of the conference is to determine which direction the proposed law school would go. "We are calling on some of the best legal minds in the country to mull things over like philosophies and basic principales for the new law school," Carr said.
