School Year at Charleston School of Law Started This Week

Summary: Classes began for the 2014-2015 academic year at the Charleston School of Law on Monday despite the school’s undecided ownership. 

Enrollment for first-year students at the Charleston School of Law dropped by just seven students for the school year that began this week compared to last year’s class, according to The Post and Courier.

For this year’s class there are 170 students enrolled. The dean of the school, Andy Abrams, announced the enrollment figures on the first day of classes. He said overall enrollment data would not be available until next week.

The ownership of the school is still up in the air after a potential sale to the for-profit InfiLaw System fell through.

“Everybody would like a final answer on (ownership),” Abrams said, “but it doesn’t change the school or the faculty.”

Even though InfiLaw has not resubmitted an application to purchase the law school, Abrams was told to file a petition with the American Bar Association for the transfer of ownership to the company. The petition will be voted on in December by the ABA.

Abrams noted that the law school is attempting to better its bar exam pass rate. Practice test sessions will be offered by the school when each semester comes to an end. He said they will be called “mini-bars.”

“We’re trying to provide the kind of legal education we wish we would have gotten.”
