July 25, 2012

On Tuesday the American Bar Association issued a public censure of the University of Illinois College of Law announcing sanctions against the law school for deliberately reporting and publishing false admissions statistics. The censure refers to intentionally false LSAT scores and incoming student GPAs the law school provided for the entering class of 2005 and the entering classes of 2007 through 2011. The sanctions also include a $250,000 fine, a public corrective statement from the school, and a requirement that the school hire a compliance monitor to report to the association's accreditation committee on its admissions process and data for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 academic years.
