CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The president of the troubled Charleston School of Law has resigned after just days on the job.

Media outlets report that Maryann Jones quit in an email before signing a contract. She was hired Nov. 13.

Many students, alumni and attorneys across the state are opposed to the school’s possible sale to the for-profit InfiLaw System, which owns three other law schools.

Two owners of the Charleston School of Law favor the sale. The third owner is pushing to form a nonprofit corporation to run the 10-year-old private school in downtown Charleston.

In her email to the owners late Thursday, Jones wrote that she’s become the focus of everyone’s frustration and anger, and it’s a situation she’s unwilling to undertake.
