'Con Man' Gets the Boot

Northwestern expels him after learning of his record.

, The National Law Journal


Mauricio Celis, the "biggest con man in the history of Nueces County," appeared in a Corpus Christi courtroom on April 22 to begin serving 10 years' probation on 14 counts of falsely presenting himself as a lawyer.

    Amazing! No, not merely Celis himself.
    It‘s amazing that Northwestern doesn‘t get convicted of something for charging $76,000 in tuition for "three two-week sessions in Chicago and Madrid over eight months." What kind of legal education is that? And, how is it ethical?

    Sounds like they basically collect a fat fee from each "student" for issuing an LLM.
