This was a very helpful post as I've been looking into CSOL but haven't trouble finding first-hand accounts of students' experience since it's such a new school.

I am pretty sold on the school EXCEPT that I'm most interested in Intellectual Property Law - do you think it has a decent program for that or should I look for a bigger more specialized school?

Not sure if you would know this but thought I'd ask. On this note - do you feel the curriculum is expansive enough?

Thanks much - any info on this is appreciated! If you don't know perhaps there's a resource you could point me to? I've been scouring the Internet all day.

Thanks!

Well, it's been almost 4 years since I wrote that original posting about my first semester at CSOL. I guess it is certainly time for an update! I am proud to report that I did graduate from Charleston Law in May 2009 as a member of the school's third graduating class. I stayed in the part-time (evening division) throughout law school and took 3-4 classes each semester. Although I did not graduate with honors (2.94), I was able to maintain a B average while working a full-time job as a police officer. I did complete an externship in my final year at CSOL in the county prosecutor's office. I am currently working for the federal government.

I am not looking forward to beginning repayment on the nearly $150,000 in law debt, but I am comforted by the fact that there is a federal student loan partial forgiveness program for working in public service careers.

No regrets.

Good schools provide candidates who will participate in community and extracurricular activities which normally separates the acceptance of a discharge. So head out there and look for a coherent strategy for community work.
