No Waiver Of ABA-Accredited Law Degree For Georgia Applicant
The Supreme Court of Georgia affirmed a determination of the Board of Bar Examiners declining to waive the requirement that an application for bar admission graduate from an ABA-accredited law school. The applicant had a degree from "a correpondence law school utilizing internet-based, online, and recorded instruction. Further, the applicant had a masters of law from an accredited institution. She had passed the "first-year" California state bar examination and the MPRE.
The court found that '[t]he Board's procedures provide the opportunity to show good cause why the traditional educational requirements should be waived" but that the board did not abuse its discretion here. (Mike Frisch)
