CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A state lawmaker is proposing that the private Charleston School of Law merge with the College of Charleston.
Republican Rep. Stephen Goldfinch of Murrells Inlet, a graduate of the law school, thinks the legislature would approve such a merger, according to the Post and Courier.
Law school leaders have entered a management services agreement with InfiLaw Systems which owns three other for-profit law schools. Students and alumni at the Charleston school are concerned what that may mean to the value of their degrees.
The school's alumni board is gathering information about a possible sale to InfiLaw and how to stop it.
Goldfinch says Coastal Carolina University has also expressed interest in a merger with the law school but that would require the law school moving to Conway.
