A degree doesn’t guarantee a job.
Via Las Vegas Sun:
A jury has found that a San Diego law school did not mislead a graduate who sued on grounds she was lured there by false promises that her degree would land her a job.
The jury rejected Anna Alaburda’s claim against Thomas Jefferson School of Law on a 9-3 vote Thursday.
While similar lawsuits have been filed in courts across the country, the case is believed to be the first of its kind to go to trial.
Alaburda said the school used inflated data to bolster the success rate of its job-seeking graduates.
The 37-year-old woman graduated near the top of her class in 2008 and has been unable to find a full-time job as a lawyer.
She says she has been saddled with student debt and sought $125,000 in damages.
