A decade ago, the three for-profit law schools operated by the InfiLaw consortium enrolled nearly 4,000 aspiring lawyers. Today, there are just 135 students at InfiLaw’s last remaining outpost—the Florida Coastal School of Law—and that campus is dangling on the precipice of closure as well.

The arm of the American Bar Association that accredits law schools this month approved a teach-out plan for the Jacksonville law school under which it will not enroll any new students and will stop offering classes by the end of the summer. The remaining students will finish out their degrees at other law schools and, by July 2023, Florida Coastal will cease to exist.
