A proposed sale of the Charleston (SC) Law School to a Florida-based company has captured the state legislature's attention, and it appears some there may have other plans for the stand alone law school.
Some powerful S.C. lawmakers are trying to stop the sale of the Charleston School of Law to a Florida-based company to clear the way for it to merge with a state-supported school, a move that would give South Carolina two publicly funded law schools.

Here is the full story from Adam Beam of thestate.com. According to the story, some legislators proposed to merge the law school with the College of Charleston, a public university located in downtown Charleston.
