Ben Trachtenberg, an associate professor at University of Missouri
School of Law who has written about law schools misrepresenting incoming
student GPAs, LSAT scores and graduate employment data [Law School Marketing and Legal Ethics, 92 Neb. L. Rev. ___ (2013)], says he may
file legal ethics complaints with state bars against those who allegedly
published the bogus data.
"Almost every day when I get up, I
have to wonder is today the day I'm going to break down and file a
complaint" with state bar ethics panels, he tells Bloomberg Law's Lee
Pacchia. Trachtenberg would prefer ethics charges be filed by
the schools that employed those who published the bogus data. "It's
getting to be a little nuts that the folks who really know what's going
on aren't doing anything about it," he says. He may file
charges, if no one else has, once his article in the June 2013 issue of
the Nebraska Law Review is published, he says.
