Charleston School of Law

Summary: Two tenured professors voiced opposition to the sale of the law school and were fired soon after. Was it a coincidence or an act of retaliation?

Charleston School of Law has been undergoing some not so pleasant changes. Tenured professors, Nancy Zisk and Allyson Haynes Stuart voiced their unhappiness to the changes. They ended being two of the seven professors that the school terminated in May.

Zisk and Stuart have sued the school and the owners, George Kosko and Robert Carr for unspecified amount in damages to cover lost wages, health and pension benefits, and academic employment opportunities for the future. They have also requested an injunction, allowing them to keep their tenured status with routine expenditures done by the school and owners to guarantee money is available to pay their salaries.

The school claims that they were let go because they had high salaries and the school has to cut back. They claim they were terminated because of their vocal disapproval of the schools potential sale to the for-profit InfiLaw system.

The school first announced in 2013 that they were selling to InfiLaw but the sale was put on hold due to opposition. The law school’s enrollment has steadily declined from 708 in 2011 to 450 by the end of the 2015 school year.
