New President of Charleston School of Law Quits After 8 Days

November 25, 2014

Maryann Jones, incoming president of the Charleston School of Law, resigned after just eight days on the job, according to The Post and Courier, a Charleston newspaper. The law school's possible sale to a for-profit chain, the InfiLaw System, has been a source of controversy. Jones said in a written statement that she decided not to sign her job contract because of "the level of vitriol, with all sides making me a lightning rod for an unfortunate situation that was not of my making."
