After signing a letter of intent earlier this year, talks for Middle Tennessee State University to transfer Indiana’s Valparaiso University School of Law to Murfreesboro have progressed, with MTSU school officials insisting the move is a positive opportunity. MTSU’s Sidelines reports that the university’s president, Sidney McPhee, said there is a need in Middle Tennessee for a public, accredited law school. Valparaiso was founded in 1879 and has been accredited with the American Bar Association since 1929, but in recent years has seen falling GPAs, enrollment numbers and bar exam passage rates.
