Name of article[edit]

Can someone provide a citation that "University of North Carolina School of Law" is the correct name for this article. If the logic is that it's UNC School of Law, then that would be incorrect as "UNC" commonly becomes "University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill" in long form.

If you go to the school's web site you'll see that it's referred to as "UNC School of Law" (as in the banner at the top) and "University of North Carolina School of Law" while elsewhere the larger university is referred to as "University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill," "UNC-Chapel Hill" and "UNC-CH." "University of North Carolina School of Law" is what is on all the school's publications -- letterhead, promotional materials, etc. The school of medicine follows the same style. Its name is "University of North Carolina School of Medicine." Ncjon (talk) 03:25, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
I can't see anything on the website that says anything other than '"UNC School of Law", and that isn't conclusive. I'm not disagreeing with you necessarily, but I'd like to see an exact citation, otherwise the page should really be of the form (university name) (school name). All the departments I happen to be involved with use "UNC" in short form and "University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill" in long form, as the university itself often does. According to its licensing department UNC is a trademark of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Yellowspacehopper (talk) 16:31, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
Since you won't take the law school's own web site, which I admit could be confusing under your criteria since they often use the "UNC School of Law" shorthand, here's some more: American Bar Association-Law School Admissions Council profile, American Bar Association-Law School Admissions Council guide, North Carolina Legal Education Assistance Foundation listing, Vault profileAmerican Bar Association pro bono directory listing Justia listing A copy of the 1999-2000 dean's reportNorth Carolina Bar Association list of schools National Association of Legal Professionals entry.

Thanks. Yellowspacehopper (talk) 22:34, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

I would also like to see a citation for this as I am quite curious. --DavidD4scnrt (talk) 03:58, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Law Review merge[edit]

  • I'm opposed to a merger of the North Carolina Law Review article into the University of North Carolina School of Law article. The law review is the university's oldest, it is the most frequently cited by courts and academics, and the most frequently published. The article definitely could use some improvement and expansion, but I think it should be free standing, as two of the other UNC School of Law journals are and many other law reviews are.
  • I'm also strongly opposed to the merger of the North Carolina Law Review article into the University of North Carolina School of Law article. The North Carolina Law Review, as the Law School's flagship journal, and as the university's oldest legal periodical, deserves a free-standing entry. Merging this with the Law School's article would be a great sign of disrespect to the Law Review. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 152.23.69.128 (talk) 13:10, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
