The University of Illinois College of Law must pay a $250,000 fine to the American Bar Association for inflating the academic credentials of its incoming students, under a censure the ABA announced on July 24.

It was the first time the ABA has fined a school for misreporting consumer data. Villanova University School of Law is the only other school to have been censured for inflating its numbers in the past 25 years, but it was not fined.
