— Phillip Closius, founding dean of the Wilmington University School of Law (and former dean of the University of Baltimore School of Law), in comments given during a press conference announcing the launch of the school. Wilmington will enroll its first law school class in Fall 2023, and full-time tuition will be $24,000, which is on the lower end of the spectrum as far as law school tuition is concerned. Wilmington will be Delaware’s second law school.
