A Top Law School's Email Gaffe Reveals Just How Bad Things Look For Its Grads

•, Erin Fuchs
 The school's "Pathways to Practice" program gives a $15-an-hour stipend to grads who get volunteer positions with non-profits, according to a blog run by law professor Paul Campos.

It's probably safe to assume GW law grads are working for free, after paying a $45,000 annual tuition, because they can't find paying work.

And thanks to an email gaffe yesterday, reported by Campos, we know exactly how many students are on a "pathway" to practice instead of having a salaried position.

GW graduates who enrolled in the program got an email reminding them to turn in their time sheets – but whoever sent it failed to BCC them, an unnamed source told Campos.
So those grads saw exactly how many of their peers were also stuck with a unpaid gig: 121, or 21 percent of its graduating class.

Twenty-one percent is a pretty high unemployment rate – especially considering the national unemployment rate is at 8.1 percent.
