Lakehead University has moved one step closer to establishing what could be the seventh law school in the province if their proposal for the former Port Arthur Collegiate Institute is successful.

LU has re-submitted its proposal to the Law Society of Upper Canada hoping to get approval for a new school that would house 150 students once it was fully operational.

Lakehead University President Fred Gilbert said Thursday the re-submission was requested by the Law Society which asked for more details on proposed course information. Gilbert says he expects the new proposal will be up for consideration in February.

An audit shows that close to $4 million worth of renovations is required at the PACI and if approval is granted, the school could be operational by fall of 2009.
