Chicago Grad Faces 3-Year Suspension For Altering Grades on Law School Transcript

The Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission has recommended that 2003 Chicago Law Grad Loren Friedman have his law license suspended for three years for altering grades in twenty courses on his law school transcript.  Mr. Friedman had failed to disclose in his law school application that he had been dismissed from the University of Illinois Medical School because of poor academic performance.

Mr. Friedman is now an M.B.A. student at the University of Illinois:

In his application to the University of Illinois business school, Friedman didn't mention the altered transcripts or that he lied on his law school application; he instead contacted a dean of student affairs at the school and outlined the general allegations against him at the ARDC. The dean's reaction? Friedman's failure to disclose on the application didn't matter, since the school "was only interested in matters of a criminal nature."
