Chicago's DePaul Law School joins Cooley Law School and New York Law School in prevailing over graduates accusing the schools of misleading them into enrolling with fraudulent statistics. From the Cook County judge's decision:
DePaul cannot be blamed for the fact that eight of the nine plaintiffs graduated at a time which was witness to a metamorphosis in the practice of law due to a number of factors not the least of which was the height of a tumultuous and deep recession that seriously affected employment in the legal profession.
An appeal is expected.
