Since its founding in 2005, Charlotte School of Law has become a big presence in the city. Nearly 1,500 students go there, making it the largest law school in the state, by far. And as of this fall, they're swarming around Uptown taking 10 floors of a high rise.
What's lesser known is that Charlotte School of Law is the state's only private, for-profit law school. And while its students pay about as much in tuition as those at highly-ranked Wake Forest, Charlotte graduates have a much tougher time finding jobs that pay enough to cover the debt.
