Law school class action to add 20 more schools to target list

The class action lawsuit suing multiple US schools over false data provided to prospective students has seen a win this week, when Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s motion to dismiss was denied. Three other law schools have filed motions to dismiss — New York Law School, Cooley Law, and Florida Coastal. Will this be the start of a trend? The legal team behind the litigation – David Anziska and Jesse Strauss – added 12 more schools to its target list this year, before announcing yesterday that they are planning to initiate proceedings against 20 more law schools over allegedly deceptive post-graduation employment statistics. According to this report, the next group of law schools facing potential lawsuits is as follows: • American University Washington College of Law • Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law • Chapman University School of Law • Columbus School of Law, The Catholic University of America • Loyola Marymount University Law School • Loyola University Chicago School of Law • New England School of Law • Pace University School of Law • Pepperdine University School of Law • Roger Williams University School of Law • Seattle University School of Law • St. John’s University School of Law • St. Louis University School of Law • Stetson University College of Law • Syracuse University College of Law • University of Miami School of Law • University of St. Thomas School of Law • Valparaiso University School of Law • Western New England University School of Law • Whittier Law School
