Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. is investigating potential claims on behalf of DeVry Education Group Inc. (NYSE:DV) investors concerning whether the company's officers and board of directors violated the federal securities laws.

On January 27, 2016, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") announced that it had filed a lawsuit against DeVry University alleging the company deceived students about the prospect that they would find employment. The FTC alleged that DeVry ran false television and online advertisements about the employment success and earnings of its graduates. Specifically, the FTC accused the school of being deceptive by representing that 90% of DeVry graduates found work in their field of study within six months of graduation, and that DeVry's graduates would earn more than those who completed bachelor's degrees from other colleges or universities.

On this news, shares of DeVry fell $3.65 per share, or over 15%, to close at $20.09 per share on January 27, 2016.
