Jurors began deliberating Wednesday in the trial of a lawsuit filed by a woman who claims the San Diego-based Thomas Jefferson School of Law misrepresents the ability of graduates to find jobs.

Anna Alaburda, 37, filed her lawsuit in 2011, claiming false advertising and misrepresentations by the school.

Her attorney, Brian Procel, told the jury she spent more than $100,000 for her degree but was unable to find a full-time job as an attorney because she relied on the school’s false employment figures.
