ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - St. Louis University School of Law is caught in the crosshairs of a pending class-action lawsuit.
Some graduates of the program claim they can’t find jobs in their fields.
“We charge that law schools have been reporting year-in, year-out with Madoff-like consistency employment rates of well over ninety percent,” says David Anziska, a New York-based attorney who’s targeting SLU law school and 19 others nationwide. “I believe that right now, under forty percent of recent law school graduates are employed in full-time, permanent positions in which a JD degree is required or preferred.”
Taxpayers should listen to his evidence, Anziska says, because they’re the ones on the hook for federally-backed student loans for law school graduates who default or fail to find work in their fields.
KMOX News was unable to reach a spokesperson at SLU for a response to the class-action suit.
