More than 70 years ago, the University of Chicago Law School was founded by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to offer a degree in law to anyone who wanted it.
It was the first school to offer degrees in social justice, and it remains the most prestigious law school in the world today.
Now the institution is at risk of losing its commitment to the cause of social justice.
President Trump is considering replacing the law school with a “specialist training academy” to teach aspiring attorneys the skills of social injustice and to help them navigate the legal system.
It’s unclear what the academy would be like, and whether it would include the legal training offered at the University.
The law school’s leadership did not respond to a request for comment.
The school has not released any details about the academy, and a spokesperson for the president’s transition team did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment.
“It’s a sad day for the University,” said Michelle Condon, an associate professor of social policy at the law schools at Ohio State University.
“The University of California has done a great job, but I think there’s a real risk to the future of that university.
The President’s Office is taking the right steps.
It has a very important mission to be an equal opportunity employer and a beacon of justice in America.”

President Donald J. Trump is planning to appoint a special counsel to investigate allegations that his campaign officials colluded with Russian officials to influence the 2016 election.
Trump has repeatedly denied the allegations, and the investigation has largely focused on his personal finances and business dealings with Russian entities.
President Mike Pence, who was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States on Friday, announced his intention to nominate the former Harvard law professor to serve as his attorney general.
In a statement, Trump said the nominee, Robert Mueller, would lead a “team of outstanding prosecutors” to fight crime.
“We are committed to finding the truth, and ensuring that the rule of law is preserved in our country,” the statement said.
“Robert Mueller will bring a proven track record of integrity and impartiality to the Department of Justice, and I am confident he will do an outstanding job.”
“I want to thank Robert Mueller and his team for their hard work and commitment to this mission,” Trump said.
Trump, who has not spoken publicly since he fired FBI Director James Comey, has repeatedly dismissed the investigation as politically motivated and a distraction from the real issues at hand.
“The Russia investigation is a witch hunt by the Democrats and the media, which are working overtime to smear and destroy President Trump,” Trump tweeted last week.
“I am confident that the Department will be able to put an end to this nonsense.”
Mueller, who will take over as special counsel in the wake of the announcement, has been the subject of a special Senate investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 campaign.
He has not been charged with a crime.
