Troubled For-profit Law School in North Carolina Closing

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The alumni association president of a troubled, for-profit law school in North Carolina says it’s closing immediately.

Lee Robertson Jr. says Charlotte School of Law employees were notified Monday. By Tuesday afternoon, the 11-year-old school’s website had been taken down.

Local media report the University of North Carolina Board of Governors voted against extending the school’s operating license, which expired last Thursday. The school failed to qualify for federal student aid as the board stipulated in June.

Students were told by email Friday classes would resume Aug. 28.

But on Monday, the American Bar Association rejected the school’s “teach-out” plan to remain open for existing students.

Enrollment had fallen from a high of 1,400 students to fewer than 100. Dozens of students have sued the school, alleging fraud.
