Lawsuits By Graduates Against Law Schools For Breach of Contract and Other Causes of Action Are Failing

October 16, 2015

Disgruntled law graduates began suing their alma maters in 2011, accusing law schools of misleading recruits about their chances of finding a job. But to date, none of those cases have succeeded, and just last week another suit filed in Florida was dismissed. Of the 15 similar lawsuits filed, only a handful remain, and none of have been certified as a class action. The lawsuits challenged the accuracy of employment statistics and salary data the schools reported to attract new students. A U.S. district court judge in Florida wrote that prospective students of Florida Coastal School of Law were “a sophisticated subset of education consumers, capable of sifting through data and weighing alternatives.”
