Charleston School of Law Students Oppose Their School’s Sale to Infilaw

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

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.
