12 more law schools sued over job data

A dozen more law schools are being sued over their employment data. University of Michigan Law School alumnus David Anziska, who practices in New York and is representing plaintiffs in some of the suits, made the announcement today.

According to a press release from Anziska, “The lawsuits allege that many schools falsely inflated graduate employment rates by, among other artifices, employing their own graduates in temporary jobs and counting graduates working in non-legal-related jobs and part-time and temporary jobs as ’employed’ even though such jobs either do not require a law degree or do not pay enough to service the massive debt taken on to finance the degree.”

That brings the total count of these lawsuits up to 15. Michigan’s own Thomas M. Cooley Law School was the first. None of the dozen suits filed today involved Michigan Schools. They are:

  • Albany Law School of Union University
  • Brooklyn Law School
  • Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University
  • California Western School of Law
  • Golden Gate University School of Law
  • Southwestern Law School
  • University of San Francisco School of Law
  • IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law
  • DePaul University College of Law
  • The John Marshall Law School
  • Florida Coastal School of Law
  • Widener University School of Law
