Kid lawyer: A 16-year-old gets into law school
The National Jurist - March 20, 2019
We can only imagine how law school admissions’ staff reacted to Haley Taylor Schlitz’s application.
Her date of birth?
Had to be a typo. No doubt she meant to say she’s 26 …
Not 16 …
After all, how many teens that age have managed to graduate from college, take the Law School Admission test and apply to law school?
Well, these kids today …
Haley has been accepted into Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law in Dallas. She starts in the fall. She’s not old enough to vote, but she’s old enough to take Constitutional Law.
The teen will soon be graduating from Texas Woman’s University, as well as receiving her associates degree from Tarrant County College in Fort Worth.
She wants to get her driver’s license too.
According to a story from her community college news site, she was home-schooled since the fifth grade after her parents discovered her academic prowess. She graduated from high school at 13.
