Professor Jerry Organ Recognized as National Jurist's 'Most Influential People'
For the second year in a row, Professor Jerry Organ is recognized as one of the “Most Influential People in Legal Education” by the National Jurist for his work requiring law schools to post scholarship retention policies.
Of his accomplishments, National Jurist noted:
“Jerry Organ continues to lead the transparency charge when it comes to law school scholarship retention rate. Thanks, in part, to his efforts, those rates are required to be on law school website pages. Some schools had shockingly low retentions, so students-believing they has a full ride if they performed well academically-suddenly found themselves responsible for their own tuitions. They ended up angry – and in debt. Organ who ranked 20th on the 2012 list, has been involved in helping move forward the ABA’s effort to gather employment outcome information as a member of the Questionnaire Committee.” (http://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/cypress/nationaljurist0114/#/20 )
Jerry Organ is the Associate Director of the Holloran Center for Ethical Leadership in the Professions whose research focuses primarily on transparency in the financial aspects of the decision to attend law school.
