Lawmakers want opinion on possible law school sale

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Charleston County lawmakers want an attorney general's opinion on the possible sale of the Charleston School of Law.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports lawmakers who met Wednesday want several questions answered. They want to know what constitutes a change in ownership, whether a management services agreement means new owners are running the school and whether any licensing rules have been violated.

The private Charleston School of Law has entered a management services agreement with InfiLaw Systems which owns three for-profit law schools. Such an agreement can be the first step in a sale.

Students and alumni at the Charleston school worry what a sale could mean to the value of their degrees.

State Rep. Leon Stavrinakis says the management change requires a new state license.
