8 year old passes law school test

An eight year old kid in Brazil who has skipped two grades has done the almost unthinkable: He passed the law school entrance test; and almost managed to get enrolled until he showed up at school with his father. He was told he needed a high school diploma. It seems that there is no standard test in that country, unlike the common law schools in Canada and the United States which use the LSAT; and he just happened to pick a school which has a rather easy one.

I think he should have been allowed to stay. It's not like a lot of adults who've been at the bar for thirty or forty years are any good. That applies to all countries.

Good thing I have a lawyer who's smart on his feet. No, I'm not going to give his name.
