More woes at Thomas Jefferson School of Law

Enrollment plunges; lawsuits pile up over building defects

According to the National Law Journal, a New York law firm hired by Thomas Jefferson School of Law has filed suit, claiming the school owes it $1.3 million. The law firm, LePatner & Associates, says it did investigative work for the school, which reached a settlement on a breach of contract case filed by the builder of the headquarters that opened in 2011. The firm also did work to provide information for a recent suit the school filed against the architect.

Earlier this month, the school revealed that it had laid off 12 staff members and eliminated 14 classes in a bid to slice $4.4 million from the budget. The school missed its goal of enrolling 350 new students this year by 100, according to the publication.

STUDENT SUES JEFFERSON: Jackson E. Millikan, a student at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, has sued the school in Superior Court for, among many things, negligence in administering an exam; material breach of contract terms; anonymous grades, and bait and switch misrepresentation of a housing subsidy award.

The publication AbovetheLaw.com wrote a sardonic story about the suit. The main charge, says the publication, is that the school made Millikan retake Legal Writing and Civil Procedure. Millikan got a D the first time around. This interfered with his plans for his third year "so he decided to take them to court," says the publication. "In the process, every complaint he has about the school worked its way into the filing." Best, Don Bauder
