Attorney for Law School Grads Describes Law Schools as Frauds

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

An attorney representing over 100 clients in the middle of 14 lawsuits against their law schools claims that the schools inflated post-graduation employment stats. The attorney, David Anziska, said that the students want their tuition reimbursed and want the schools to admit they lied.

“They feel law schools need to be held accountable,” Anziska told Business Insider during an interview.

In the lawsuits filed by Anziska, the schools lied in their jobs stats by giving their own graduates temporary positions and not telling the public how many of their graduates had jobs in the legal world.

“Law school is a really big business,” Anziska told Business Insider. “It’s a total cash cow.”

Anziska has had three cases filed in Chicago thrown out of court and back in July, a lawsuit dismissed a lawsuit against the Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Michigan. In the ruling, the judge said that the graduates should not have counted on the employment figures alone to choose their law school.

Anziska mentioned that he is in the process of appealing three decisions and will not end his work until his clients obtain what they want. What his clients want are for the schools to admit that they made mistakes in the data.

“Law schools are going to have to pay out a partial tuition reimbursement,” Anziska said, talking about what could happen if he wins his cases.

He also said that even if his clients do not win monetary awards, he will still push for change.
