CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The dean of the troubled Charlotte School of Law is stepping down.

The Charlotte Observer reports that Jay Conison led the for-profit school for almost four years. The school announced his departure Monday afternoon. The statement said Conison will remain on the faculty.

A longtime faculty member, Scott Broyles, will serve as interim dean

Broyles says the school faces serious challenges but says he will work to restore faith in the school through consistent admission standards and best practices in the classrooms.

The school was placed on probation in November by the American Bar Association because of problems with admission, curriculum and bar exam test scores.

The U.S. Education Department in December removed access to student loans, accusing school officials of hiding its problems from current and potential students.
