I think it is accurate to say that some alums have concerns. Some of the concerns I have heard are what I would call emotional. Is Albany Law School going to disappear? Other objections are more substantive such as control of the law school. Currently every member of the Board of Trustees is an AL alum. Many of we AL alums do have an attachment and many of us have made significant gifts and bequests. These are just a few of the thorny issues which are being discussed. I think if the alliance/ merger can address these issues and some others the proposal will move ahead.

Today's meeting is important but in a limited way. If the trustees vote to move ahead then the nitty gritty details will have to be worked out. That will take some time and of couse could ultimately fail. If the trustees vote to not continue the discussions then the deal is off. I would expect a vote to move forward. A vote to move ahead would be a very positive signal.

The next several months will be spent trying to define the initial configuration. UA has some good fits for AL students, most obviously is the business school. One of AL's new core programs will be to train lawyers to work in/ with financial markets.
