UVA Law Mistakenly Emails Students’ Personal Information

Posted: Updated:

The University of Virginia School of Law is apologizing for an email mistakenly sent out Wednesday that contained private information about all of its clerkship applicants.

The spreadsheet included grade point averages, class ranks and biographical information for 155 students

The law school says it did not include Social Security numbers or financial information and is reaching out to all of those who had their information wrongfully shared.

Statement form the UVA School of Law:

Yesterday, a UVA Law School administrator sent an email to approximately 160 law students that mistakenly attached a spreadsheet containing student information. The spreadsheet included grade point averages, class ranks and biographical information for 155 students who are applying for clerkships.

It did not include social security numbers or financial information.

The dean and other Law School officials have apologized and reached out individually to all of the affected students. We are deeply distressed that this mistake occurred, and we are in the process of reviewing our data management procedures to build in more safeguards against unintentional disclosures.
