Ave Maria School of Law Doing OK

Austin Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, recalls some of the growing pains that occurred at Ave Maria University’s School of Law in years past and said that the troubling times are behind the Catholic law school. What’s emerged, he says, is an excellent law school with its brightest days ahead of them.

“Of all the internecine battles among orthodox Catholics in our time, among the nastiest was the Ave Maria Law School war,” wrote Ruse at The Catholic Thing. ”The administration eventually won, but only after years and at great cost.”

Ruse, whose wife, Cathy, serves on the Ave Maria School of Law Board of Directors, details the history of the law school and its controversial move from Michigan to Florida and encourages people to look with fresh eyes at the “amazing and much needed experiment in truly Catholic legal education.”
