Last week, the state Supreme Court agreed to hear the case of Maximiliano Gabriel Gluzman, an Argentinean attorney who last year was denied the opportunity to take the Tennessee bar exam, according to the Nashville Post. The Tennessee Board of Law Examiners denied Gluzman the chance to sit for the test due to new rules governing the eligibility of applicants with foreign law degrees, which took effect Jan. 1 of last year. Vanderbilt and University of Tennessee’s law schools issued a joint petition supporting Gluzman’s right to take the exam.
