CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Charlotte School of Law’s interim dean announced Thursday morning that he is stepping down from his role after spending less than a month on the job.

Professor Scott Broyles sent an email to the faculty and students at the law school announcing his resignation. He did not give a reason, but said he plans to continue as a faculty member and do everything he can to help the school.

CSL’s Alumni Association said it is confused by Broyles’ resignation and it is concerned about what it means for the future of the law school.

CSL has faced numerous problems since November when the American Bar Association put it on probation. The probation led the Department of Education to pull federal student loans from students attending the school.

Broyles told Channel 9 in March that the problems started for CSL when the market dropped and instead of creating smaller classes, the school lowered its standards and accepted unqualified students.
