This book provides the first comprehensive look at law school expulsions. The product of years of exhaustive research, it identifies both the reasons why law students are expelled and the arguments they have raised in court to try to gain readmission. Although judges across the country repeatedly have rejected such lawsuits, such challenges are likely to become even more frequent in the future.
