Practice Without Taking The Bar Exam?

Joseph D. Kearney, Diploma-Privilege Case Continues, July 9, 2009, Marquette University Law School, http://law.marquette.edu/facultyblog/2009/07/09/diploma-privilege-case-continues/

The US Appeals Court for the 7th Circuit reversed the district court’s dismissal of the case in Wiesmueller v. Kosobucki. This class action case challenges the diploma privilege, which permits graduates of Marquette University and the University of Wisconsin to practice law without having taken the bar exam.  The court stated that, “the plaintiffs should have an opportunity to submit evidence on the matter.” Evidence is needed for a cost-benefit analysis to determine the effect this state regulation has on interstate commerce versus the state’s legitimate interests.
