A law student who was admitted to Lincoln Memorial University Duncan School of Law before she completed her undergraduate degree is suing the law school for negligent admission. Her suit claims that she has incurred $80K in law school debt and is ineligible to take the bar exam in Tennessee. She seeks $750K in damages. Above the Law points out that other graduates of the as-yet unaccredited law school may find themselves barred from taking the bar exam in states that require graduation from an accredited law school. Meanwhile, LMU Duncan has sued the ABA for accreditation.
