The National Law Journal reports that "[t]he team of lawyers behind proposed class actions against the Thomas M. Cooley School of Law and New York Law School have followed through with their threat to sue even more schools" by suing a dozen other law schools alleging that they have misled consumers about how their students fare in the job market. The schools sued are Albany Law School, Brooklyn Law, California Western, Chicago-Kent, DePaul, Florida Coastal, Golden Gate, Hofstra, John Marshall, University of San Francisco, Southwestern, and Widener. Many more suits are expected. According to one of the plaintiffs' lawyers, David Anziska, "Our goal is that every few months we will file between 20 and 25 lawsuits. The key, right now, is to bring as many law schools as possible into the fray."
We have previously discussed this controversy here, here, here, and here. And we have noted that Law School Transparency, an organization founded in 2009 by two recent Vanderbilt Law grads, advocates for reforms (some of which have been adopted by the ABA) and acts as a clearinghouse for available jobs data.
