Former Students Sue Their Law Schools

Students who graduated from law school and can’t find a job are suing their former law schools for fraud.  They are claiming that the law schools falsified their job placement statistics, and lured them to attend their school when they knew that they would have a hard time finding employment afterward. But the law schools are winning these cases, including a recent one in Chicago decided earlier this week.  Across the country there have been about 14 of these lawsuits by former law students, including ones against several New York law schools.  So far all have been dismissed.  Who would hire one of these guys to handle your case?  Anybody, I suppose, who can dream up a frivolous law suit and convince one of these losers to take it on.
