A former law student has filed a federal class action, claiming that St. Thomas University School of Law of Miami is illegally accepting and then expelling more than 25 percent of its first-year class to boost its bar pass rates. The action also alleges that the school began a scheme in 2003 to accept large numbers of students -- and their tuition dollars -- but subsequently dismissed, or pressured the withdrawal of, about 30 percent of its first- and second-year students.
