Charleston Law School Signs Management Agreement With InfiLaw. Is Sale Next?

SignLess than a month after Ken Randall left the Alabama Deanship to join InfiLaw, the firm has entered into a Management Services Agreement with for-profit Charleston School of Law, becoming the fourth law school in InfiLaw's stable (joining Charlotte, Florida Coastal, and Phoenix).  Does InfiLaw have other kettles in the fire? Its website has gone black, saying only "Important Announcement Coming Soon! Please check back soon for an important announcement!"

Charleston Post & Courier, Charleston School of Law Graduates Talk About Fighting Possible Sale of School:

Graduates of the Charleston School of Law are so alarmed by the possible sale of the school to InfiLaw System that they are considering ways to stop it.

Current students grew more outraged Friday, when they couldn’t get answers to their questions on the school’s future from its leaders.

The law school released a statement Thursday evening, which said it had entered into a management services agreement with InfiLaw System, a group that owns three other for-profit law schools. Such arrangements sometimes are the first step in a sale. But law school leaders refused to respond Thursday and Friday to questions on whether the school will be sold.
