On October 5, 2016, Peiffer Rosca Wolf Law Firm and Lambert Law Firm filed a class action in the Southern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, on behalf of doctoral students alleging that Walden University and Laureate International Universities, commonly known as “Walden,” violated doctoral students’ rights by creating a dissertation process that was difficult, if not impossible to timely complete (it they completed it at all).

An NBC News article by Anna R. Schecter published yesterday revealed, not surprisingly, that the Minnesota Office of Higher Education has launched a review of online PhD programs at Walden prompted, in part, by increased complaints about the same dissertation process that is the focus of the class action filed against Walden.
