Grade Reform, Law Professors, Law Schools, Privacy, Screw-Ups

Would You Like To See The Grades Of All Your Classmates? Then You Should Have Gone To This Top Law School!

To: All Law students in 510/001 (Civil Procedure, Professor Friedman), Fall 2012 term

I have learned that Professor Friedman has sent out grades to the class identifying students by name (instead of by exam ID number). Although I have not successfully reached Professor Friedman yet, I am certain that this was an honest – albeit significant – mistake on his part.

On behalf of the Law School. I apologize for this error. We take issues related to the privacy of student records – and particularly grades – very seriously, and so we regret very much the distress and disappointment that this incident has caused you.

I have one important request: out of respect for your classmates’ privacy, please delete Professor Friedman’s message immediately. If by chance you have not yet looked at the part of the message that contains the grade information – including your own – please do not. The Office of Student Records staff has just posted the grades for this class on Wolverine Access.
