South Carolina state lawmakers are proposing that the Charleston School of Law merge
with the College of Charleston. Republican representative Stephen Goldfinch of
Murrells Inlet is a major proponent of the merger. He commented, “I believe the
legislature would support such a merger. It could be done tomorrow.”
In the past there have been informal discussion about the possibilities of a
merger, but nothing solid had been finalized. The chairman of the College of
Charleston’s Board of Trustees Greg Padgett, commented, “we would welcome every
opportunity to discuss how the College of Charleston can better serve the
people of Charleston and the state.” He goes on to say that there is a definite
interest in discussing and overseeing the facts and small details involved in
such an alliance.
