Want To Buy A Law School (or Three) On The Cheap? InfiLaw May Have A Deal For You.

ACFABA Journal, Can InfiLaw Schools Be Had on the Cheap, and Would They Be Worth It?:

Sterling Partners may be unloading all three of its for-profit InfiLaw System schools, say some consultants after the announcement that Charlotte School of Law, which is currently on probation for being out of compliance with ABA accreditation standards, plans to affiliate with a nonprofit college in the Northeast. ...

Earlier this month, Arizona Summit Law School announced it will sign an affiliation agreement with Bethune-Cookman University, a historically black college in Florida. And in January, Scott DeVito, dean of Florida Coastal School of Law, told Jacksonville.com that the school hoped to join a nonprofit university. At this point, Florida Coastal is in conversations with “select universities,” DeVito told the ABA Journal Thursday, but no agreement has been reached.

"Charlotte School of Law, which is currently on probation for being out of compliance with ABA accreditation standards, plans to affiliate with a nonprofit college in the Northeast."

I can think of a certain Northeast university that recently set up a *branch campus* in Charlotte to toss MBAs and nursing degrees and such at pretty much anyone. Just saying.

If law schools were run like a business and didn't have to deal with anti-trust laws, I would suggest the top 75 school get together and buy out the bottom 25 schools. They could then close them. My guess is cash on cash, they'd be ahead.

It is not Northeastern. It is the University of New Haven. A total head scratcher. About as logical as Bethune-Cookman and Arizona Summit.
