Georgia Supreme Court justices refused to let an unaccredited law school graduate — a man identified as R.R.R. — who earned his degree through home study, take the bar exam. R.R.R. graduated from Monticello University Law School, which is not accredited by the American Bar Association or the Georgia Board of Bar Examiners. He completed his degree by studying at homewithout attending classes and applied to take the Georgia Bar in March 1998, according to the opinion. R.R.R. contended that home schooling made him as qualified as any graduate from an approved school.
