Grads Sue Chicago Law Schools over Job Placement Rates

Graduates claim schools inflate job placement rates

View Comments ()



    Three prominent Chicago law schools are named in lawsuits filed by graduates who claim the schools inflated job placement rates.

    DePaul University College of Law, John Marshall Law School and Chicago-Kent College of Law are three of 12 schools sued in the country, according to Crain's Chicago Business.

    A New York lawyer who filed the suits on behalf of the graduates said many law schools don't tell the truth about job placement rates.

    DePaul, John Marshall and Chicago-Kent claim at least 90 percent of their graduates get jobs, according to the lawsuits. But the attorney believes the actual number is much lower.

    The Chicago schools did not comment because they had not seen the lawsuits.
