Charlotte School of Law Has a New Dean; Pigs Trying to Join the Non-Profit World
Dean Steps Down, Remains on Faculty: On March 20, 2017, Michael Gordon wrote a Charlotte Observer piece entitled “Top Charlotte School of Law leader steps down.” Check out this opening:
“With his school’s future hanging in the balance, the dean of the beleaguered Charlotte School of Law is stepping down.
Jay Conison has led the uptown, for-profit school for almost four years. Charlotte Law announced his departure with a four-paragraph statement Monday afternoon. Conison will remain on the faculty, the statement said.
He will be replaced on an interim basis by Scott Broyles, a former federal prosecutor who joined the Charlotte faculty in 2006.
“I am honored that the faculty has placed its trust in me as we move forward,” Broyles said in the school’s statement. “While we face serious challenges, our aim is clear: to restore faith in our institution through consistent standards in admissions and best practices in the classroom.”
The school’s alumni, which in February called on Conison and school President Chidi Ogene to resign, applauded the change.
“We are excited about Dean Broyles’ vision for the Charlotte School of Law and for his leadership,” said Charlotte attorney Lee Robertson Jr, president of the alumni association. “Dean Broyles has been a respected and dedicated member of the faculty for many years, and our alumni are optimistic for the future of our law school.”
Conison led the for-profit school during its most tumultuous era and leaves his leadership position while the uptown school straddles an uncertain future.
Charlotte Law, like law schools nationwide, was hit hard by the recession and the resulting shrinkage of legal jobs. But Charlotte Law’s problems only grew from there.
In November, the school was placed on probation by the American Bar Association for longstanding problems with admission, curriculum and bar exam test scores. A month later, the Department of Education made the school the first-ever accredited law school to lose access to the federal student-loan program. The department singled out Conison and school President Chidi Ogene and accused them of hiding the seriousness of the school’s shortcomings from current and prospective students.” [Emphasis mine]
The fact that Jay Conison will remain on the faculty at this FOURTH TIER DUNG PIT shows that the school is merely moving chairs on a sinking ship. If the commode was truly outraged by his conduct, they would have asked him to resign his position. Then again, the typical “law professor” has less honor and integrity than a street thug. Hell, even the common criminal has enough balls to rob you – without pretending that they are performing a “public service.”
OTTTTher DevelopmenTTTT$: On March 22, 2017, Charlotte NPR affiliate WFAE featured a report labeled “Charlotte School Of Law To Go Non-Profit As Part Of Overhaul.” The story is from Lisa Worf and Marshall Terry. Take a look at this revealing portion:
“Charlotte School of Law is on its way to becoming a non-profit. It's part of the plan to get the law school's federal loan money re-instated. WFAE's Lisa Worf has been following the school's struggles since the American Bar Association placed the law school on probation this past fall. She joins Morning Edition host Marshall Terry.
MT: How would this work?
LW: The school's new dean, Scott Broyles, says the plan is to partner with a university in the northeast. InfiLaw, the company who now owns Charlotte School of Law, wouldn't make academic decisions, but, instead, deal with the school's day-to-day operations.
MT: How much of a difference would this change make? Is it a smokescreen?
LW: It's hard to say at this point. It's not clear how that agreement between the non-profit board and InfiLaw would work, nor how much the school would pay InfiLaw. But the plan also calls for faculty to play a bigger role in making academic decisions, starting with admissions standards. Here's Broyles:
SB: Kind of the hydraulic pressures that were out there moving us in the bad direction for the last few years as far as the quality of students, we've effectively removed all that…
MT: Is this enough to persuade the Department of Education to begin cutting federal loan checks again to Charlotte School of Law?
LW: That remains to be seen. A letter from the Department of Education in January didn't mention the option of re-instating federal loan money to the school back. It simply noted because the school hadn't agreed to close, students wouldn't have their federal loans forgiven. But Broyles says a few things have changed since then.
SB: The complaints that were out there, that were addressed by the ABA and then in part adopted by the DOE people, those have been resolved for practical purposes. They really don't have any reason to criticize the school going forward. And, secondly, it's a new administration.
LW: He's talking about the Department of Education under the Trump administration. Previously, the department was cracking down on for-profit colleges, but the current administration has a better view of them. Broyles thinks that'll help the school, even though the plan still is to become a non-profit.” [Emphasis mine]
How honorable, huh?!?!
Conclusion: As you can see, the cockroaches are trying to explore their opTTTTion$. The bitches and hags realize that there is less heat on for-profit cess pits, but they are also looking at joining a non-profit in the northeast United States. In the final analysis, the law school pigs will do and say anything to keep the gravy train of federal student loan money pouring into their troughs. Those who attend such trash heaps deserve their fate.
