Faculty opposes Charleston School of Law sale

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Two groups of faculty members from the Charleston School of Law have written the state Commission on Higher Education asking that the agency oppose the sale of the school to the InfiLaw System that runs three for-profit law schools.

The faculty members say the letters show most of the faculty at the private 10-year-old school opposes the sale.

The Commission on Higher Education has scheduled public hearings on the sale Friday in North Charleston and Monday in Columbia.

The Charleston School of Law has about 600 students. Tuition is about $38,000. Any change in ownership would have to be approved by both the commission and the American Bar Association.

The state's other law school is the University of South Carolina School of Law in Columbia.
