Villanova law school placed on probation

Written by The Associated Press | Dec 10, 2012 12:22 PM

(Villanova) -- Villanova University's law school has been put on probation for two years by the Association of American Law Schools for submitting falsified admissions data to the American Bar Association.

The probation does not affect the university's accreditation. But the Association of American Law Schools could have banned Villanova faculty from participating in conferences or withheld faculty recruitment services.

The association considered Villanova's own thorough investigation into grade inflation.

Villanova disclosed last year that staff members inflated the school's median grade-point averages and scores on the Law School Admissions Test. Inflated averages can make a school appear more selective than it actually is.
