Unemployed Law graduate sues former school asking for refund

A California woman who graduated from law school in 2008, but can’t still find a job has taken her former school to court asking for tuition refund and payment of lost .The aspiring young lawyer had graduated at the top of her class at one of America’s top law schools – Thomas Jefferson School of Law.

37-year-old Anna Alaburda is suing San Diego's Thomas Jefferson School of Law for fraud, asking the school to pay for the $150,000 in tuition she owes, plus lost wages.

The lawsuit alleges that the school misrepresented the number of its students who found jobs after graduating, and that she wouldn't have enrolled if she knew it was inflated.

Anna Alaburda  $170,000 in student loans, paying interest of about 8 percent, according to The New York Times. The average cost of a law degree at Thomas Jefferson at the time of Alaburda's enrollment was about $137,000 -- then among the highest in the nation.

Lawyers for the school, however, argue that Alaburda simply didn't work hard enough to find employment. The judge in the case has however, allowed Alaburda's claim to proceed, despite efforts by the law school to derail her.

Around 15 students across the US have tried to bring forward similar legal action in recent years after failing to gain employment in law blaming their colleges for inflating their graduate employment figures, but Ms Alaburda’s is the first to go to trial.

According to court documents, Alaburda graduated with honors in 2008 and passed the California bar on her first attempt.

 

After sending her resume to 150 law firms, Alaburda says she received just one full-time job offer, and it paid less than offers in other industries.

Law graduates have been struggling to gain employment in the increasingly competitive industry with more students enrolling in law and fewer jobs available. It would be recalled that last year, form miss Venezuela with Law degree lived in penury and died homeless
