    Hello everyone!

    Angelo Binno, a blind applicant from Michigan who was rejected from every law school he applied to five years ago is now taking his case against the ABA to the Supreme Court. Mr. Binno’s case stems from his inability to draw diagrams for the logic games portion of the LSAT and the resultant low LSAT test score resulted in his rejections.

    Because the ABA technically requires the LSAT to apply to law school (we italicize ‘technically’ because one law school is now accepting the GRE and others may follow suit), Mr. Binno’s lawyer is arguing the ABA is guilty of discriminating against blind applicants and they should be allowed to opt out of the LSAT.

    Whether the Supreme Court agrees to listen to the case and any decision they may ultimately reach is probably at least months away.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Hello everyone!

    Just an update that the Supreme Court rejected Angelo Binno’s case against the ABA in March. So earlier this week, Binno filed a similarly worded lawsuit against the LSAC in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Sincerely,
