A former University of Iowa law student is offering a public apology for publishing work that was not his own. Sung J-Lim released a letter Monday, saying he deeply regrets plagiarizing an article about corporate law in the law school’s journal last spring. Lim graduated from the U-of-I in May of last year and had been the journal’s editor-in-chief. In the letter, he says “The article…was not my own work” and “I have committed an egregious error.” The University will revoke Lim’s law degree as the article was nearly a verbatim copy of a 1999 article in a Fordham University journal. He’ll also be banned from taking classes at the Iowa City institution and can’t transfer credits. Lim is reportedly no longer working for the law firm in Michigan where he had been employed.
