Football Ousts Ethics Exam at BC Law
Boston College takes its football seriously, so much so that it is punting a mandatory legal ethics exam from campus to free up parking spaces for a BC game against Florida State. According to Eagleionline, a blog for students at Boston College Law School (which I attended long ago), students scheduled to take the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE) at the law school on Nov. 3 were told yesterday that the exam would be moved to "other locations in Boston." Reportedly, BC police expect to park some 1,100 cars on the law school campus, which is separate from BC's main campus and football stadium. Ironically, because students from other schools could take the MPRE at BC, a law school official had encouraged students to get "the home field advantage" by signing up early for one of what were supposed to be 150 available seats. Let's hope the home-field advantage at least works for the football team, which so far holds the top spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
