False Equivalence

The Georgia Supreme Court denied an appeal of a decision by its Board of Bar Examiners declining to waive the requirement that the applicant graduate from a law school accredited by the ABA. The applicant had graduated from the John F. Kennedy Law School in 2006 and has not been admitted in any state. An applicant seeking waiver of the requirement must demonstrate legal knowledge and experience equivalent to that of an accredited law school: "Despite repeated requests...[he] never submitted this documentation. Without this information, the board had no objective basis to evaluate [his] legal education or compare it to that of an ABA-accredited school. While [he] provided several references, and an admirable history of public service, these alone fall well short of the showing of good cause required..." (Mike Frisch)
