An online law school graduate who sued the high court of Massachusetts for the opportunity to take that state's bar examination is now a newly minted Massachusetts lawyer. Last November, Ross Mitchell won his case against the state's Board of Bar Examiners, which denied his bid to bypass a requirement that U.S.-trained applicants be graduates of an American Bar Association-accredited law school. The court allowed Mitchell to sit for the bar because the ABA is mulling changes to its accreditation standards.
