An 8-year-old boy with dreams of becoming a judge has passed a law school entrance exam -- shocking Brazil's legal profession and prompting a federal investigation. The Universidade Paulista, a private university, issued a statement acknowledging that the boy had passed the entrance exam and that it initially enrolled him. But he was turned away from classes when he showed up with his father. The school said the fifth grader has to graduate from high school before he can enter the university.
