NEWARK, Del. - The University of Delaware Board of Trustees has given administrators approval to pursue plans to build a public law school.

The first class could be enrolled in 2015.

The school would be Delaware's first public law school. It would be on UD's Newark campus.

About 200 students would be enrolled in its first class.

The school would be Delaware's second law school, after Widener University School of Law in Brandywine Hundred.

The board's action authorizes a feasibility study and the drafting of a business plan.
