The importance of education

Considering some of the lawyers I've known, I find it difficult to believe that most literate children would have a tough time passing U.S. law school exams:

Brazil's lawyers have been shocked to find that a boy aged eight has managed to pass the entrance exam to law school. The Bar Association said the achievement of Joao Victor Portellinha should be taken as a warning about the low standards of some of Brazil's law schools.... My dream is to be a federal judge," the boy said, according to Globo TV's Web site. "So I decided to take the test to see how I would do ... it was easy. I studied a week before the test."

I don't know why they don't simply let little kids who can pass the tests practice law or rule from the bench, the results couldn't be significantly worse. Imagine how effective a little girl crying in front of an all-female jury would be.
