Law student filing lawsuit isn't anything new. After all, they are studying to become lawyers.
But this one is a bit unique: Law student Morgan Crutchfield, a part-time student at Lincoln Memorial University's Duncan School of Law is suing the school for letting her enroll in it in the first place!
Crutchfield said in the suit she informed administrators at the law school immediately after learning she was lacking a foreign language requirement to graduate from Pennsylvania State University in 2009. Officials at Lincoln Memorial, however, told her it wouldn't be a problem so long as she completed her undergraduate degree before her final year of law school, according to the lawsuit.
Emails exchanged between Crutchfield and administrators over the last three years, outlining her academic requirements, are included in the court documents.
Last month, the state Board of Law Examiners informed Crutchfield that rules require her to have completed her undergraduate degree before beginning law school in order to sit for the state bar exam.
Over 2 1/2 years, Crutchfield has accumulated 54 course credits and nearly $80,000 in student loans at the Duncan School of Law, according to the suit.
