ABA Continues it’s Effort to Expose Law Schools that Falsify Reporting of Job Data of Graduates
The Chicago Tribune reports about recent efforts by the American Bar Association to ensure the integrity of job data reported by law schools about how many of their graduates obtain jobs and at what average salaries. Law schools use data on the employment status of their graduates as a recruiting and marketing tool to attract new enrollment. Recently, many schools have been caught falsifying data and mischaracterizing the employment status and average salaries of their graduates. These deceptive advertising practices have led to a number of lawsuits filed by recent graduates against their schools.
