Another School Sued over Allegedly Misleading Employment Statistics

Barry Currier, managing director of accreditation and legal education at the ABA, said the organization isn’t done improving the employment data it releases, but warned that more information would not necessarily help prospective students.
He said the LSAT was not a good way of determining whether a student would pass the bar, and said some of the criticism of schools fails to account for changes in the job market for law school graduates.
“We’re letting our concerns about employment and the job market, over which law schools have no control, drive too much of this conversation,” he said.
