Charlotte Law School: Not So Quick

Charlotte Law School has delayed the opening of spring classes.

National Law Journal: Is Doomsday Imminent for Charlotte Law School?

"After Charlotte School of Law officials announced Friday that it would open for its spring semester on Jan. 19, officials at the troubled school backtracked on Monday and delayed the start until Jan. 27 as it works to secure tuition financing after losing its federal loan eligibility."

Update: As noted in the comments, the ABA Journal lists the starting date for classes as Jan. 23.

And, here's another article from the Charlotte Observer: Is Charlotte School of Law taking steps to shut down?

"School leaders say improvements already are in place. But as the CSL crisis bleeds into its third month, students, parents and faculty continue to complain that they have been kept in the dark by Ogene and Conison. The faculty already has issued a vote of no confidence against the pair."

Charlotte Law could save a lot of confusion by putting out a press release.

The ABA Journal updated its article on CharlotteLaw to report an opening date of Jan. 23 (http://www.abajournal.com/news/article/charlotte_school_of_law_students_reportedly_will_receive_loan_money_for_spr). I suspect that's the (current) correct date, since it's a Monday. It would seem odd to begin a semester on a Friday (Jan. 27) -- though with all the twists and turns in this saga, who knows?
