InfiLaw Shelves Plans for Law School in Arlington, Virginia

InfiLawInfiLaw, the owner of for-profit law schools Charlotte School of Law, Florida Coastal School of Law, and Phoenix School of Law, has shelved plans for a law school in Arlington, Virginia:

In April, the Arlington County Board quietly approved a site plan amendment for the vacant National Gateway building at 3500 and 3550 S. Clark Street, along Jefferson Davis Highway near Potomac Yard. The amendment was granted to allow the office building to be used for educational purposes. Specifically, the building was to be occupied by a new 1,300-student law school, complete with 22 classrooms, a law library, a bookstore, a moot courtroom and a cafe. Since April, however, no construction permits have been issued for the building.

InfiLaw System, a Florida-based consortium of independent law schools that was planning to open the new school, now says that plans have fallen through, at least for now. “The InfiLaw System was exploring opening a law school in Arlington, Virginia,” confirmed Kathy Heldman, the organization’s vice president of marketing, via email last night. “We have decided to put the initiative on hold.”
