William C. Hubbard, the brand new dean of the University of South Carolina School of Law and a former ABA president, unintentionally emailed college students a file with latest graduates’ confidential bar examination grades and details about whether or not they handed or failed the check.
According to the State, Hubbard rapidly realized his mistake and despatched college students a second e-mail, asking that they delete his first. The newspaper interviewed Hubbard on Tuesday and stories that he “appeared devastated” about his mistake.
Hubbard didn’t instantly reply to an ABA Journal interview request.
“It’s a mistake I deeply regret. I take full responsibility for the error, and I am profoundly sorry for any harm or distress I may have caused,” he informed the State.
The article doesn’t checklist a date for Hubbard’s emails. According to the South Carolina Supreme Court’s Office of Bar Admissions website, July examination outcomes had been let go Oct. 9.
A former companion at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough who practiced enterprise regulation, Hubbard was an ABA president for the 2014-2015 term and at the moment is a particular adviser for the ABA Center for Innovation. He was a 2016 ABA Journal Legal Rebel.
Hubbard was appointed as dean of the regulation faculty in June and is a former trustee of the college, the Post and Courier stories.
