Charleston School of Law Students Oppose Their School’s Sale to Infilaw View Count: 137

The Charleston Law Review conducted a student opinion survey and found that “96 percent of the Charleston school of law students said that they do not support the impending sale of their school to Florida based education company Infilaw system.”

In that survey, a little more than half of the second year law students responded that they would consider transferring to another law school if the sale to Infilaw happens.

CSOL has been in discussion with Infilaw regarding a possible sale to the education company for more than twelve months. Students, however, did not become aware of the possible sale until news of a “management services agreement” went public.

Critics of Infilaw have been vocal and outspoken against the education company, “despite the fact that its three existing law schools in Phoenix, Ariz., Jacksonville, Fla., and Charlotte, N.C., report average tuition costs and bar passage rates similar to CSOL,” according to the Charleston City Paper.

Other results from the survey were as follows:

  • 98 percent of respondents do not support the schools proposed sale to Infilaw.
  • 82 percent of first year respondents would consider transferring if the the sale happens.
  • A majority of students felt that if the school were sold to Infilaw, their support of the school as alumni would be affected.
  • Finally, almost 100 percent of the respondents felt that students should have a say in discussions regarding their school’s ownership.
