North Carolina AG Opens Investigation Of Charlotte Law School

Charlotte Logo (2016)Following up on my previous posts (links below):  Politico, North Carolina Opens Investigation Into For-Profit Law School:

North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein has opened an investigation into Charlotte School of Law, the for-profit institution that the Obama administration cut off from federal funding last December. Laura Brewer, a spokeswoman for Stein, confirmed in an email to Morning Education that the office “is investigating the school under the state’s civil consumer protection laws and is very concerned about the current situation at the school.”

The AG’s investigation, and a separate review by state regulators, come as the embattled law school is urging Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to quickly reinstate its access to millions of dollars each year in federal student loans. The saga over the school’s future is turning into one of the first high-profile tests of how the Trump administration will approach for-profit colleges.
