SC schools get chance to buy Charleston law school

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A company that runs for-profit law schools says it will give other schools in South Carolina a final chance to buy the Charleston School of Law before going forward with its plans to purchase the school.

The InfiLaw System said in a statement Monday that it will give the College of Charleston or the University of South Carolina an opportunity to make an offer for the private law school.

InfiLaw says it will continue its effort to be licensed to run the Charleston school while any talks continue. InfiLaw operates the Charlotte School of Law, the Florida Coastal School of Law and the Phoenix School of Law

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