Students And Alumni Seek Court-Appointed Receiver In Last Ditch Effort To Save Golden Gate Law School

Reuters, Golden Gate Law School Needs a Receiver to Save It, Say Students and Alumni:

Golden Gate (2022)Beleaguered Golden Gate University School of Law could be saved under the control of a court-appointed receiver, a group of students and alumni argue in a new court filing, challenging the school’s planned closure.

The law school’s alumni association and four current students on Monday asked a San Francisco judge not to throw out their lawsuit against Golden Gate University, noting that Western State College of Law was poised to shut down in 2019 until a receiver secured a sale that saved the Southern California school.

A similar effort could prevent Golden Gate University from closing down its 123-year-old juris doctor program, the plaintiffs said in their opposition to the university’s bid to end their suit. An initial hearing on the case is scheduled for June 3.
