Interesting article in this week's National law Journal: Law Schools Mean Business, by Leigh Jones:
As head of InfiLaw Corp., [Rick] Inatome oversees operations of three for-profit law schools, which include Florida Coastal School of Law, Phoenix International School of Law and Charlotte School of Law. The institutions are part of a contingent of for-profit law schools that have sprung up in the 10 years since the American Bar Association began permitting them to seek accreditation. And even though InfiLaw's schools and the other for-profits across the country make up a small -- if not stigmatized -- portion of law schools, their businesslike approach is one that their nonprofit competitors are increasingly utilizing.
