Los Angeles-A federal judge in Los Angeles last week certified a class action of 300,000 law school students in an antitrust case filed against the makers of the BAR/BRI law review course. In the case, seven law school students allege they were overcharged by about $1,000 each after West Publishing Corp., the owner of BAR/BRI, and Kaplan Inc., which makes the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), conspired to monopolize the law exam market. Ryan Rodriguez v. West Publishing Corp., No. 05cv3222 (C.D. Calif.). The case seeks triple the $300 million in damages and applies to all students who took the BAR/BRI course from 1997 to 2006. John Shaughnessy, senior director of corporate communications at the legal and regulatory market group of The Thomson Corp., the parent company of West Publishing, said, “BAR/BRI believes the new claims . . . are without merit and intends to defend the case vigorously.” -amanda bronstad
