(Scroll down for video) A woman filed a lawsuit against a law school in California, after she failed to find employment despite searching for a job for 10 years.

37-year-old Anna Alaburda of San Diego, decided to study law at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law, as they claimed that 80 percent of students were employed nine months after graduation.

Alaburda graduated at the top of her class. She also passed the bar exam on her first try. Despite their academic success, Alaburda has been unable to find full-time employment as a lawyer.

She has sent her resume to more than 150 law firms and received only one job offer, which she rejected because of the low pay.

Alaburda has graduated with $150,000 in student loan debt, a figure that has since soared to $170,000 because of interest.

Alaburda has been forced to accept a part-time job in order to pay her bills.

In the lawsuit, Alaburda accuses the law school of using inflated post graduation employment figures and salaries to defraud potential students.
